Naoko Ogigami: Another Universe

Welcome to a film universe where none of the characters are married, they are rarely in romantic relationships, they don’t live with their parents, and they don’t have children. Instead, the characters in this quartet of films form friendships with each other as they pursue their own interests. And by the way, all these characters are women. Japanese women. Naoko Ogigami is not interested in worn-out screen stereotypes. She needs more room when she sets out to explore a spectrum of thoughts and feelings with more nuances. Loneliness, anger, loss, quiet joy – and not least of all, humor. Her films have been described as lyashi-kei eiga, films that provide emotional healing. This is something that has made her extremely popular in Japan, among both women and men. Of course! Who can resist the idea of emotional healing? It’s like the best vacation you can imagine.
