Our sister city colleagues at the Sapporo International Short Film Festival in Sapporo, Japan, return to share a new program of highlights from this year’s ninth annual event. The program includes Tsunematsu Hideshi’s Say a Prayer on Tanuki, a charming take on father-son relationships; Masaya Matsui’s My Life in the Lunchbox, about a man’s obsession with his wife’s bento; Chie Hayakawa’s Niagara, a captivating tale of a girl meeting her grandparents for the first time; Paul Leeming’s An American Piano, an earnest tale of a young, piano-playing girl and the POWs for whom she performs, and Yantong Zhu’s My Milk Cup Cow, a delightful animated film in which a father tells his daughter too many white lies.
