Born 1962 in Tokyo, Japan. After graduating from Waseda University in 1987, Kore-eda joined TV Man Union where he directed several prize-winning documentary programs. In 2014, he launched his production company BUN-BUKU. In 1995, his directorial debut, “Maborosi”, based on the original novel written by Miyamoto Teru, won the 52nd Venice International Film Festival’s Golden Osella. “After Life” (1998), distributed in over 30 countries, brought Kore-eda international acclaim.
