People Still Call It Love
Passion, Affection and Destruction in Japanese Cinema
The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme returns to Watershed with another exciting lineup showcasing the versatility and uniqueness of Japanese cinema.
This year's programme has the theme of passion, affection, and destruction. Countless film-makers have explored what loves means and does to us, but to what extent can emotion affect human behaviour, and is there a form of love that’s specific to Japan?
From the conventional love stories between a man and a woman, to the inescapable bond of love and hate (and rivalry) between siblings, the programme features some of the best examples of cinema from Japan and will look at how the perpetual theme of love has remained an inspirational source for the country’s filmmakers.
In celebration of the Japanese Foundation Touring Film Programme, throughout February get 10% off when you spend £15.00 or more per person per cinema ticket from the a la carte menu at Izakaya Bristol. Just show your ticket before you order!
