Film: AFTER LIFE (2000, Japan)

What is the one memory you would take with you?

Directed by: Hirokazu Kore-eda

A group of bureaucrats in a heavenly way station have one week to help
the recently deceased select their single most cherished memory, which
they will hold with them for eternity.

After Life exerted a significant influence on our special guest, Greg Allen's Souvenir Series-- twelve short films exploring different aspects of memory--and on his weblog, [apparently, not enough influence, since I can't narrow it down to just one memory. -g.]


  • Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema - Best Film & Best Screenplay
  • Chicago Film Critics Association Awards - Best Foreign Language Film
  • Las Vegas Film Critics Society Awards - Best Foreign Film
  • Newport International Film Festival - Jury Award Best Film

    What Else: Kore-eda's upcoming classic, NOBODY KNOWS will be released in theaters on January 28th by IFC Films. Because Greg Allen has chosen to screen AFTER LIFE with The Reel Roundtable, IFC Films graciously extended invitations to The Reel Roundtable audience for the premiere screening of NOBODY KNOWS.

    Tickets for the premiere will be handed out at the screening of AFTER LIFE. If you canít make the January 18th premiere of NOBODY KNOWS, youíll also be able to see it in MoMAís new ten-week "Premieres" series or in theaters on January 28th.

    Special [as in special education, -g.] Guest: Greg Allen of

    Where: The Millennium Theater on 66 E. 4th Street, between Second and Bowery.

    Admission: $5


  • Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

    Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
