Akashi -あかし-

AKASHI -あかし-

2017 – JAP/CAN

Dir: Mayumi Yoshida


Through two Japanese women from different generations, Akashi shows an “international citizen”’s look at what it means to negotiate love. The SHOULDs, WOULDs and COULDs about choice… and the grace of accepting when there isn’t one.


The film won the Tellus Storyhive 2016 – Female Director Edition, was a semifinalist of the NBC Universal Short Film Festival,  and also part of the official selection of the Asian American International Film Festival de Nova Iorque and the National Screen Institute Festival.
