Film Details

Cleveland premiere!


United States | 2017 | Lana Wilson


This moving, acclaimed documentary introduces us to a former Japanese punk rocker turned Buddhist priest who specializes in counseling suicidal individuals. But this taxing work has clearly taken its toll on this husband and father, who has demons of his own. The movie has both a critics and audience score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. “It’s not often one can have a genuinely spiritual experience watching a movie. But that’s precisely what’s on offer with The Departure.” ­-Washington Post. Subtitles. DCP. 87 min.
