Coachella Valley Premiere – One Time Screening
“Still Walking” observes a family reunion at the seaside home of a strait-laced retired doctor and his wife; events are seen through the eyes of their self-effacing grown-up son, Ryo, a recently unemployed art restorer who brings along his new bride, a widow, and her 10-year-old son from her previous marriage.
