Cartões Postais para Clara
March 4, 2012.
A cold and sunless day in Tokyo. I spent it mostly in my cramped hotel room, trying to get some rest from the weeks and months of non-stop work. Tomorrow I’ll return to Seoul for one last hectic week of packing. And then to America for the first time in four years, to begin a long long journey.
Last night, at the Athenee Francais here, I had a first screening of The Narcissus Flowers of Katsura-shima, my 33rd long film. They also screened Imagens de uma cidade perdida, which is dedicated to you. The screening went well, and what I was told from the audience seemed to confirm the film works well for Japanese, which is the proper audience as it is about the earthquake and tsunami of last year. I was happy with the response.
I will be terribly busy the next months, and may only be able to find time to send these postcards. Though I hope I can find the time for another letter, too.
Teu pai, jon
Amo-te, teu pai, Jon
