Dad’s Lunch Box, Dir. Masakazu Fukatsu, Japan, 2017, 76 mins, Japanese with English subtitles, PG
Sunday 3 February, 4:00pm
 
Based on a simple but touching true story which gained viral recognition, having been retweeted more than 80,000 times and garnered over 260,000 ‘likes’. A newly divorced father (Toshimi Watanabe) finds himself out of depth when faced with the unfamiliar challenge of preparing his daughter’s daily lunchbox.
 
Refusing to perpetuate the role of the Japanese absentee father, director Masakazu Fukatsu highlights the existence of more profound relationships between single fathers and their children, while providing an insight into the growing niche of papaben, or bento lunches prepared by fathers dipping their toes into the culinary world.
