Director Hirokazu Kore-eda is one of the most respected auteurs of the Japanese cinema. An heir to the legacy of Yasujirō Ozu, Kore-eda has found universal acclaim for his heartfelt family dramas. Expanding his international lens, this year finds the release of his first non-Japanese-language film, The Truth. We’re honored to present a conversation about his new film, touching on the shifting realities of a long career in filmmaking, and what is so tangibly elemental and human about Kore-eda’s own work. The Truth is a different kind of family drama: this time, concerning the family of a famed French actress (Catherine Denueve), and how success has adjusted her relationship with daughter (Juliette Binoche). Also starring Ethan Hawke, as the English-speaking husband absorbed in these dicey family dynamics. Listen to our interview for more on The Truth, premiering July 3 online.
