The Departure
  • Year2017
  • Duration87 min

Emmy-award winning director Lana Wilson (After Tiller) chronicles one Zen Buddhist priest’s difficult emotional labour of suicide prevention. A former tearaway youth with nihilistic tendencies, Ittetsu Nemoto feels a natural kinship with the people he counsels. But it has come at the cost of his own mental and physical health, both of which rapidly deteriorate as he is unable to detach from the deep yet morbid bonds he strikes at work.
