The Departure

Lana Wilson, co-director of True/False standout After Tiller, joins us for a special screening of her new documentary The Departure, which captures Ittetsu Nemoto, a former-punk-rocker-turned-Buddhist-priest in Japan who has made a career out of helping suicidal people find reasons to live.

Co-presented with the Murray Center for Documentary Journalism.

“Immensely moving. Lyrical and deeply meditative . . . digs deep into major questions without being afraid of the answers.” (Kate Erbland, Indiewire)
