minka

A film about place and memory, a farmhouse in Japan, and the lives of the people who called it home.

A beautiful short film about John Roderick, an Associated Press reporter in Japan, and his discovery of an old farmhouse in Japan. He and his adopted son Yoshihiro Takishita, an architect and antique dealer, transported and restored the farmhouse in a suburb of Tokyo. Shot just a month after the death of Roderick, the film looks at the memories within the walls of the minka farmhouse (via Ignant).
