Description: Pick a memory. Just one memory. One single memory that will stay with you for all of eternity. This is the premise of After Life, a tender and touching film by Tokyo-born director Hirokazu Koreeda and our film group choice for our July meeting. Here is a film that raises the question: What single memory do we want to keep and hold when everything else is erased from our minds? It happens as we see a group of people, set in Koreeda's special version of limbo, contemplate their respective lives and assess the memories they most deeply treasure. Roger Ebert has ranked Koreeda with the great humanists of the cinema. According to Ebert, his films "embrace the mystery of life, and encourage us to think about why we are here, and what makes us truly happy." Ebert's 1999 review gives After Life four stars. Film Group leader Eve Moran will introduce the film and lead a discussion after the screening. Expect the meeting to last a little over two hours. Free popcorn will be served.
