From the Japan Society website :

Donald Richie on After Life :
"A thoughtful and moving elegy in which the dead line up to be processed into the next world. Their passport is the single memory they choose to take with them. This is then filmed by a dedicated staff—comprised of those who could not or would not themselves choose a memory."

Richie recognized the remarkable talent of young Hirokazu Kore-eda from his debut film Maboroshi (1995) and promoted his films thereafter. Based on Kore-eda's original screenplay, After Life is his second film in which he explores the full range of human experience. The director interviewed hundreds of Japanese and then drew on their recollections for the film. Some of the people who were interviewed also appear on screen.

Screening on the one-year anniversary of Richie’s passing.

Introduction by Aaron Gerow , Professor of Film Studies and East Asian Language and Literature, Yale University.
