JAPANESE STORY

The phenomenal depth and breadth of stylistic and narrative invention observed in Japanese cinema offers continued delights for even the most ardent of cinephiles. The films selected for this season are intended to offer the most basic of primers to one of film’s most historically significant national cinemas. Alongside classics from titans such as Ozu and Kurosawa are included some more outré examples of work from contemporary directors, as well as samples of uniquely Japanese takes on genre, such as the kaiju, anime, and pinku eiga films featured. While there are some regrettable omissions from the selection, it is hoped that what is on offer will provide a tantalising introduction for some, and a welcome opportunity to revisit for others.
