2005_02_03_akira.jpgThe Goodman Theater and IFC--The Independent Film Channel--will be hosting a free screening on Monday February 7th of Nobody Knows, the Japanese entry for the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 2004, at the Landmark Century Cinema on Clark. Though not chosen as one of the nominees in this category, the film was nominated for the Palm D’Or at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival and was the winner of the Golden Spur at the Flanders International Film Festival for Best Foreign Film-diddly-do! Director Hirokazu Kore-eda’s previous works include the award-winning film After-Life.

The film tells the story of four siblings who are abandoned by their scatterbrained mother. Yuya Yagira plays eldest sibling Akira who becomes the de-facto parent of the crew in a performance that earned him the Palm D’Or for Best Actor at Cannes.

The film starts at 7:30 PM but it’s best to get there at least an hour ahead of time if you want to get a seat.
