LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON with Risograph Printing Workshop
In Hirokazu Kore-eda’s moving exploration of nature vs nurture, Like Father, Like Son tells the story of Ryōta who learns that his biological son was switched at birth with the boy he has raised. Now, the two affected families must face a heart-breaking choice - keep the boy they have brought up for all these years, or exchange him.
Director: Hirokazu Kore-eda. Cast: Masaharu Fukuyama, Machiko Ono, Lily Franky
Join us before the screening to take part in a Risograph printing workshop hosted by Print Collective. A combination of screen-printing and photocopying, learn about this unique printing method developed in Japan by Noboru Hayama and beloved by the artist community. We are inviting audience members to contribute to a fun and colourful collaborative piece of artwork that celebrates families and the upcoming festive season, with each participant receiving their own copy to take home.
Workshop from: 12:45pm / Film starts: 1:30pm
