SCREENING
10 Jul Sun - 2.00pm

Sachie, from Japan, opens the "Kamome Diner" in Helsinki. The specialty menu is Onigiri rice ball. However, day after day the only customer is a geeky Japan enthusiast, Tommi. One day, two Japanese ladies, each with some personal issues, come to help at Sachie's diner. The number of customers gradually increases, but the diner seems to attract only those with problems. Conversation with Sachie and the tasty food seem to resolve people's concerns. The film was shot entirely on location in Helsinki through full cooperation from Finland. Famed Finnish actor, Markku Peltola (The Man Without a Past), appears in a key role.

Born in 1972, Chiba Prefecture. She went to the United States in 1994 to study film at the University of Southern California. Yoshino's Barber Shop and Kamome Diner was presented in JFF2006 where she was the guest director.
