Film Screening: Mother’s Way, Daughter’s Choice
Showa Boston invites any interested JET alumni or friend of JET to attend its public screening of the film “Mother’s Way, Daughter’s Choice.”
A Q&A session with the film’s director, Ms. Kyoka Gasha, will follow.
“I love my mother, but I just don’t want to be like her.”
Why would successful women from the world’s second largest economic power choose to start their lives over in New York City? The documentary “Mothers’ Way, Daughters’ Choice” explores how several Japanese women struggle to reconcile their traditional upbringing and their desire to create unique lives. To understand these struggles, the director, Kyoko Gasha, shows the deep, powerful influences of Japanese culture on her own life.Kyoko also uncovers stories of other Japanese women in New York City, weaving parallel tales of guilt, denial, sacrifice and joy. This is a story of cultures clashing on a personal level.
Showa Boston offers free on-campus parking, as well as a free shuttle from Reservoir station (Green Line, D-Branch) at 4:50pm and 5:50pm.
