Naomi Kawase

Biography

Filmography

Japanese director, born in Nara in 1969.

After a degree in photography, she directed several short and mid-length films. In 1997, she completed her first feature film, Suzaku, which won the Caméra d’or in Cannes. The film takes place in Nara, her native province, whose rural landscapes she has never stopped filming. Her body of work stands out through its combination of introspection and spirituality, filmed through the prism of daily life. Hotaru (2000) and The Mourning Forest (2007) were to follow, the latter wining the Grand Prix in Cannes, and later, Hanezu (2010). A member of the Jury in 2013, she returned to present Still the Water in competition the following year. She then created her most popular success Sweet Bean (2015), before shooting Radiance (2017) and Vision (2018).
