Shoplifters

Directed by HIROKAZU KORE-EDA

NT PREMIERE

WITH JAPANESE CULTURE DISPLAY BY AUSTRALIAN-JAPANESE ASSOCIATION of the NT

After one of their shoplifting sessions, Osamu and his son come across a little girl in the freezing cold. At first reluctant to shelter the girl, Osamu’s wife agrees to take care of her after learning of the hardships
she faces. Although the family is poor, barely making enough money to survive through petty crime, they seem to live happily together until an unforeseen incident reveals hidden secrets, testing the bonds that
unite them…

This film will be preceded by a multi-faceted Japanese culture display by AJANT. Be introduced to Yukata (Japanese summer kimono), Ohagi (sweet rice dessert), Origami (art of paper folding) and Tankobushi dance performance.

Depicting a Japanese family that survives by running petty scams, Hirokazu Kore-eda's modern day Oliver Twist story offers "poverty porn" of a most unconventional sort.
