    Directed by Katsumi Nojiri, Lying to Mom is a humorous drama that depicts the life of a family as they attempt to get back to their feet from a sorrowful event.

    The Suzuki family’s eldest son, Koichi, suddenly takes his own life one day and because of shock, their mother Yuko loses her memory. For her sake, Yuko’s husband Sachio and their daughter Fumi decide to tell a once-in-a-lifetime lie.

    The first screening of the film will be on August 3 at the CCP Little Theater (Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino) during the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival. Director Katsumi Nojiri will be present at the premiere for a talk and Q&A session.

    Its second screening, on the other hand, will take place at the CCP Dream Theater on August 9.

    Lying to Mom is the recipient of the 31st Tokyo International Film Festival’s Japanese Cinema Splash Best Film Award and the 2019 Uncaged Award for Best Feature Film at the New York Asian Film Festival.

    Admission to the movie screening is free.
