There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

In Japan, the country with one of the world’s highest suicide rates, a Zen Buddhist monk dedicates his life to suicide intervention. It’s not often one can have a genuinely spiritual experience watching a movie. But that’s precisely what’s on offer with THE DEPARTURE, Lana Wilson’s quietly galvanizing portrait of life, death and the thin places in between.” – Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
