Japanese Cinema Depicting the Lives of Youth
This year’s Japan Foundation UK annual touring film programme will offer an enlightening and expansive introduction to Japanese cinema through the framework of ‘youth’.
Showcasing a vast variety of styles and tones, this programme will take a broad look at how the adults of tomorrow have been portrayed in Japanese cinema over the years by a number of established and up-and-coming directors, through the eyes of individuals struggling to find a sense of meaning and identity within the world.
This year’s line-up and participating cinemas are due to be announced shortly, so please stay tuned!
