Zero + Director Q&A with Kazuhiro Soda at Pálás Cinema

East Asia Film Festival Ireland presents ZERO by Japanese documentary filmmaker Kazuhiro Soda.

Zero is a brilliant and beautiful portrait of psychiatrist Dr. Yamamoto, who retires from his clinic in Okayama after more than 50 years of practice to embark on a new path in life. Leaving his patients after all these years, and devoted to caring for himself and his frail wife Yoshiko and her slow decline from dementia, brings new challenges. His second film on Dr. Yamamoto (a follow-on to MENTAL, 2008) director Soda frames this as an ‘observational documentary’ based on the principles including ‘no research’, ‘no script’, and ‘roll the camera yourself’, some of his ‘10 commandments of observational filmmaking’. Moving, raw and emotional, ZERO is an intimate film of deep affection. A portrait of inspiring human experience and a unique insight of an older generation dealing with health and ageing.

This screening will be followed by a Q+A with acclaimed documentary filmmaker Kazuhiro Soda, moderated by Dr. Tony Tracy.
