Minka

Minka from Birdling Films on Vimeo.

A film about place and memory, a farmhouse in Japan, and the lives of the people who called it home.

Mika is a beautiful documentary by Davina Pardo about the history of a friendship looked at through the lens of an old farmhouse in Japan. It’s beautifully told and filmed and I can honestly say that it made me cry.

Well worth watching.

Update: Minka translated is “house of the people.” It’s a traditional Japanese house.
