AKA: The Thousand Year Fire

Country: Japan

Genre: Drama



This film eloquently tells the story of a boy grieving the loss of his parents and learning to face challenges on his own. Eleven-year old Satoshi moves from Tokyo to a small seaside town to live with his grandparents. So inspired by his new surroundings, he decides to participate in Hiwatashi, a ritual swim in the open sea. Those who accomplish the feat become members of the chosen circle permitted to watch over the holy fire of Chitosebi, which has burned perpetually for a thousand years.
