Opens August 16 | One of Shinji Somai’s most beloved films, still underseen in the U.S., MOVING tells the story of Renko (Tomoko Tabata), a bright and energetic 6th-grade girl, grappling, often physically in Somai's trademark long takes, with her parents' divorce. As her mother and father lay down new rules for her life, Renko sees to it that any changes happening in her family happen on her terms. An official selection at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival, and winner of the Best Restored Film prize at last year’s Venice Film Festival, director Hirokazu Kore-eda praised MOVING, saying, “After seeing it, I had confirmation that Shinji Somai was the best filmmaker of his generation.” Film Center exclusive.
