DINNER WITH MURAKAMI
by Yan Ting Yuen (Netherlands, 2007, 54’, original version with Italian subtitles)
With: The readers of Murakami's books

A poetic portrait of the elusive Japanese author Murakami Haruki. He was born in 1949 as the son of a Buddhist monk and a merchant’s daughter, attended a school for dramatic art, and currently lives in America, boasting an impressive list of bestsellers. Why are his books so popular in widely divergent cultures and countries all over the world? And why doesn’t he like Chinese food? The filmmaker tries to capture Murakami’s surrealist world in Japan. She invites him for dinner and asks various Japanese experts and fans about the influence Murakami’s books. Will Murakami accept her invitation for dinner?
