ACF 1185: Sion Sono's NORIKO'S DINNER TABLE at MAD on Friday

Noriko's Dinner Table / Noriko No Shokutaku
Directed by Sion Sono
With Kazue Fukiishi, Tsugumi and Yuriko Yoshitaka
Japan, 2005, 159 minutes, Digital Projection
When: Friday, October 14, 2011 - 7:00 pm
Where: The Museum of Arts and Design ("MAD")
2 Columbus Circle, New York, NY 10019
Admission: $10 general / $7 members and students 

The Museum of Arts and Design's film program Sion Sono: The New Poet continues this Friday with Noriko's Dinner Table.

Synopsis: Both prequel and sequel to Sono's Suicide Club, this narrative takes up both before and after the events depicted in Suicide Club, by focusing on a family that is profoundly affected by the mass suicides portrayed in the film.  A young girl seeks emotional connection through a website that provides her with a manufactured family that fulfills her immediate desire for love. As the story unfolds, the girls' new life turns morbid and dark as mass-suicides begin infiltrating the Japanese populace. This film should not be seen as merely an addition to Suicide Club but instead as a stand-alone cinematic narrative following contemporary family dynamics and commentary on society.
