Japanese New Wave director Imamura Shoheis eighties classic The Ballad of Narayama reveals the lives of poor rural families in the mountains. Based on the Narayama Bushiko by Fukazawa Shichiro, the hardy, introspective & at times cruel account of life & death won the Palme d Or at the 1983 Cannes Film Festival & Best Picture at the Japan Academy Prize.

In a poor mountain village, there is a tradition that those who reach the age of 70 will leave the village, travel to the mountaintop, & wait for death. This practice of ubasute reduces the burden on the family over the long winter when food is scarce. Orin (Sakamoto Sumiko) is 69 years old & still in good health, but she is determined to make the trip when her time comes. Before her departure for the mountains, she bustles about tirelessly for the sake of her sons up until the very last moment.
