35th TIFF Announces Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient Nogami Teruyo



The Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) is pleased to announce that NOGAMI Teruyo will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 35th TIFF, in recognition of her extraordinary career and contributions to Japanese film.

Nogami first worked with KUROSAWA Akira on his film Rashomon as a script supervisor in 1950, and went on to participate in all his films after Ikiru in a variety of roles. This year, as TIFF revives the Kurosawa Akira Award, we are thrilled to honor Nogami Teruyo with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Lifetime Achievement Award will be given at the Closing ceremony, along with other award winners, on November 2.

Nogami Teruyo (Production Manager)
Born in 1927, Nogami worked for a publishing company before joining Daiei Kyoto Studio as an apprentice script supervisor in 1949. She started her career as a script supervisor for NOBUCHI Akira's Resurrection (1950). Beginning with Rashomon (1950), she participated in all of Kurosawa Akira's films, including Seven Samurai (1954), Dersu Uzala (1975), and Ran (1985), with the exception of The Idiot (1951), serving as a script supervisor and production manager. She also worked on KOIZUMI Takashi's After the Rain (2000) and Letters from the Mountains (2002) as the director’s assistant. In 1984, "Requiem for My Father," a documentary about her own childhood, won the Yomiuri Women’s Human Documentary Excellence Award. In 2008, YAMADA Yoji adapted the story to make Kabei: Our Mother. Nogami’s books include “Kanbon Tenki Machi” (Soshisha Publishing; published in English as “Waiting on the Weather: Making Movies with Akira Kurosawa”) and " Tokage no Shippo: Totteoki Eiga no Hanashi" (Bungeishunju).
