The Joy of Man's Desiring

Japan | 2014 | 85 Minutes | Masakazu Sugita

SIFF Film Center | Visiting Program
Director Masakazu Sugita, who survived the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995 when he was just 14 years old, decided after the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011 to craft a film he had been planning for some time: a tender and humane story about the orphans left behind after such disasters. The Joy of Man's Desiring, Mr. Sugita's debut film, received Special Mention at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival and was nominated for Best First Feature Award 2014.
