Original title: A Volta ao Mundo Quando Tinhas 30 Anos
Directed by: Aya Koretzky
Runtime: 110 minutes
Country: Portugal
Language: Japanese with English subtitles
Rating: PG

This lively and innovative documentary is at once director Aya Koretzky’s portrait of her father Jiro, and a meditation on humanity’s relationship with nature. As Aya attempts to reconstruct the formative round-the-world trip of Jiro’s youth, we see the photographs he took while journeying from Japan to the Soviet Union, Scandinavia, North Africa, the Middle East, and America. Accompanied by a narration of Jiro’s travel diaries, and intercut with Aya’s contemporary Super8 footage of his gardening, what appears before us is a vibrant soul, filled with profound empathy for places that echo the struggles of post-war Japan, a genuine spirit of openness to the world, and a conviction that mankind can live more harmoniously if it lived according to nature, rather than dominating it.
