Ito - A Diary of an Urban Priest

Pirjo Honkasalo, Finland, 2009DigiBeta, Colour, 111;

Set in Tokyo, "Ito – A Diary of an Urban Priest" tells the story of Yoshinobu Fujioka, a young Buddhist priest, and his fervent search for the meaning of life amid oppressive dreams, back alleys of the city and the darkness of the human mind. Yoshinobu hears confession in a women´s prison, bars and an old geisha house, while the many layers of nocturnal Tokyo and unpredictable memories are twisted into a web that drives people face-to-face with one another.
