Japan / 2018 / Japanese / 106 minutes / DCP

After the death of his only son, a middle-aged divorcee is pressured by his ailing mother to save the ancestral line of the Nikaido family. The way out is either for him to remarry and have a son, or for his daughter to marry a man who can take their family’s surname. Entwining Iranian cinema’s naturalistic realism and Japanese subtle profundity, Ida Panahandeh (Nahid, 40th) portrays the struggle between personal freedom and family obligation in societies where traditions run deep.
