'Matsuchiyo - Life of a Geisha' is a documentary about life of one of the last geisha in Japan. It begins with Matsuchiyo's wartime childhood. During apprenticeship years, Matsuchiyo practises, works (and plays hard) to become a true geisha. In her adulthood, she becomes one of the top geisha in town. Living with strict geisha traditions, Matsuchiyo experiences romances, tearful farewells and tragic deaths. Today, in her 70's, Matsuchiyo the geisha is as motivated as ever. She still delivers a mesmerising performance on stage, actively joins a relief effort for the victims of 2011's earthquake and tsunami. Narrated by her own son and adorned by hundreds of beautiful photos from Japan's bygone era, this film illustrates the ultimate Japanese cultural enigma that is geisha.
