Embracing & Katatsumori & Birth/Mother + Doc Talk

    After the screening of her three short documentaries, director Naomi Kawase talks extensively with film programmer Julian Ross. Kawase started her career as a photographer and made the switch to film with two short films in which she focused on her own adoption. In Embracing and Katatsumori, she studies her childhood, in which she was adopted by a great-aunt. In Birth / Mother, which she made more than 10 years later, she again focuses the camera on herself when she becomes a mother herself.
