USA, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Documentary)
Director: Yumiko Murakami
Akiko-san has followed her husband's career path to Scarsdale in America and finds herself uncomfortably immersed in the simmering melting pot of expatriate Japanese culture. Here a housewife is either perm-san or temp-san (a reference to her style of residence-not hair). This 'work-doc' stirs it up and the results are as 'frytening' as they are revealing.
