Japanese Film - The Garden of Words

Ticket Information

  • Free Admission


  • Thu 28 Jul 2022, 5:30pm–6:30pm



Come along to our free Japanese Film night, co-organised with the Japan Foundation, Sydney!

The film screening is "The Garden of Words"!

When Takao, a young high school student who dreams of becoming a shoe designer, decides to skip school one day in favour of sketching in a rainy garden, he has no idea how much his life will change when he encounters Yukino. Older but perhaps not as much wiser, she seems adrift in the world. Despite the difference in their ages, they strike up an unusual relationship that unexpectedly continues and evolves, with random meetings in the same garden on each rainy day. But the rainy season is coming to a close, and there are so many things still left unsaid and undone between them. Will there be time left for Takao to put his feelings into actions and words? Between the raindrops, between the calms in the storm, what will blossom?
