MINKA

Editor 


“beautifully perfect…an amazing short film”

-Movie Pie


“…as powerful and revelatory as Olivier Assayas’s Summer Hours, another

film that is in part about the personal and historical value of objects.”

-Slant Magazine


A film about place and memory, a farmhouse in Japan, and the lives of the people who called it home.

MINKA is a short documentary about a remarkable Japanese farmhouse and the memories it contains. In 1967, an American journalist and a Japanese student rescued the ancient house from the snow country of Japan, and their lives were forever changed.
