Please note: this season finished in March 2013
Reinventing the Past Through the Eyes of Japanese Contemporary Filmmakers
This Japan Foundation touring film programme explores Japan's past through the eyes of contemporary filmmakers examining a trend that has been prevalent in recent Japanese cinema. Showcasing a series of works from directors including Takashi Miike, Sunao Katabuchi, Hirokazu Kore-eda and Isshin Inudo, who all share the same aspiration to reinterpret and relive moments of times gone by through a variety of genres, styles and tones. From horror, drama, action to animation, this is a great opportunity to catch a broad and colourful insight into Japan's history.
Ticket prices: £8.00 full / £6.50 concessions (unless otherwise stated.)
Head of Programme Mark Cosgrove considers the cinema of perennial provocateur Ulrich Seidl and discusses why we are showing Much Ado About Nothing, the latest film from Hollywood's renaissance man Joss Whedon.
Cinékids: Gnomeo and Juliet
The Bard's much-loved story is inventively (and eccentrically!) remodeled to follow two star-cross'd garden gnomes. After the screening, children can make a gnome shadow puppet character.
