The 12th Annual Byron Bay Film Festival – Day 3

BBFF2018 at Byron Theatre

Day 3 – Sunday 14 October


 11.00am – A Little Wisdom

A Little Wisdom is Mongolian director Yuqi Kang’s intimately observed portrait of orphaned monks living in an isolated monastery in Lumbini, Nepal. Here, in the birthplace of Buddha, we follow the daily routine of five-year-old novice monk Hopakuli, who has been at the monastery since he was two. A Little Wisdom reveals the contradictions between Hopakuli’s austere monastic upbringing and a child’s natural fascination with the world beyond.

4.15pm – Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda

Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda is a poetic, reflective portrait of one of the most important artists of our era, whose career spans four decades, from pop star, to actor, to Oscar-winning film composer. Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence, The Last Emperor and The Sheltering Sky are among his achievements. Following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Sakamoto became an iconic figure in Japan against nuclear power. Coda stands as both a portrait of an extraordinary career and an intimate examination of the creative process.
