Randen: The Comings and Goings on a Kyoto Tram

[Film] July 28, 12 PM

Named after the beloved 110-year-old tram in western Kyoto City, Randen is a pleasantly low-key romantic drama that evokes the ancient city’s folklore, movie production history and deep love of trains through three intersecting stories: a writer from Kamakura researches supernatural train stories and recalls memories of his wife in her hometown; a shy local girl helps a Tokyo actor rehearse his lines in Kyoto dialect; and a high school girl from Aomori falls in love with a geeky train otaku. A local labor of love directed by Takuji Suzuki, the film was made with the help of Kyoto film students and the support of people living along the Randen line.
