Japanese Film Festival Classics Program

ACMI, Corner of Swanston Street and Flinders Street, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000
22 Nov 2018

From star-crossed lovers in the Meiji era to early feminists fighting societal norms, the Japanese Film Festival (JFF) presents a free classic film program. The Festival will present a curated program: Passion and obsession with an abridged version in Melbourne.

Featuring works adapted from novels by celebrated authors such as Junichiro Tanizaki and Kyoka Izumi, the program showcases influential works from cinematic masters from the Japanese Golden Age and New Wave.

Highlights include: The Pornographers, Cannes Palme d’Or-winning filmmaker Shohei Imamura’s darkly comical portrayal of a pornographer hustling to keep his business alive amidst Japan’s post-war economic boom; and Japanese auteur Seijun Suzuki’s multi-award-winner Kagero-za, an adaptation of Kyoka Izumi’s story of a playwright who meets a beautiful woman he suspects is the ghost of his patron's deceased wife.
