In celebration of Japanese language and culture, we are hosting Japanese Language of the Month in February.

We are starting our Japanese month with our customary film night. Sweet Bean (2015) is named after the red bean pastries (dorayaki) made by small-town baker Sentaro.  His life changes when he decides to take on a new assistant: the enigmatic 76-year old Toku, who introduces him to her own recipe for “an” (sweet bean paste).  However, their unlikely partnership is threatened by the shadow of lurking disease.  Directed by Naomi Kawase and starring Kirin Kiki and Masatoshi Nagase, the film deals with tradition, change and social taboo.
