DocLisboa: Beyond the mountains

Aya Koretzky

Portugal, 2011, 60 min., Japanese/Portuguese, HDCam



Aya Koretzky was born in Tokyo in 1983 and left Japan when she was still a child. Her parents, fed up with pollution and atomic uncertainty—and prepared to live from agriculture in an environment more in harmony with nature—moved to Portugal, to one of the wooded areas delimited by the course of Mondego’s river. The young Aya Koretzky tells in Beyond the Mountains her own story: the pursue of memories made out of images, rhetoric questions to parents, and words that all those friends and relatives, who remained in Japan, had been sending in letters full of melancholy.
