Japanese Cinema • 日本映画祭

October 1-27, 2016 • Full lineup below

This monthlong spotlight on Japanese film brings the best of old and new. We honor one of the cornerstones of Japanese filmmaking with a nostalgic look at samurai epics, including the Samurai Trilogy starring the inimitable Toshiro Mifune. Anime, a unique Japanese export, gets a spotlight with a Satoshi Kon Tribute. However individual tastes may differ, this month showcases the worldwide appeal of Japanese cinema.
