Radiance is the stunning new film by director Naomi Kawase. The film is a beautiful drama about an encounter between two lost and wounded souls. Misako (Ayame Misaki) is able to capture the beauty of cinema through her words, and shares this special gift by writing concise audio descriptions of films for the visually impaired.

The photographer Nakamori (Masatoshi Nagase) is going through a difficult point in life as he gradually loses his sight. The two are brought together as Misako’s cinematic poetry helps to shine light through the film and slowly win the hearts of the two main characters.

Radiance was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2017 Cannes. At Cannes, it won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury.
