Fade portrays the life of a grandmother in the mountainous region of Hyogo, Japan while persimmon trees enter the late season.

Capturing the grandmother’s tenacious care for traditions, trees and home, the film poetically depicts the tableaux of forgotten rural memory of the post-war; the glimpse of human spirit and persistence appear in the passing of seasons, awaiting the new beginnings.

Written, directed, edited, and cinematography by Asako Ujita
