As part of Japan Now, writer and director Momoko Ando introduces the UK premiere of her film 0.5mm
Sawa, a home helper for a middle class family with an elderly infirm grandfather, is forced to stretch her morals to keep her job. She ends up on the street, striking up ambiguous relationships with kindly old men. In 0.5mm, Ando offers a darkly funny take on Japanese society, and a beautifully crafted journey through Japan's embattled sexual landscape, confronting aging, class and patriarchy.
Momoko Ando introduces the film in conversation with Jasper Sharp, curator and filmmaker.
Tickets for Japan Now include free entry into this screening, subject to capacity.
