Japanese Cinema Screenings in London's ICA - February 2011

Date: Sunday 16th January 2011 [12:40] | Posted By: Joe

London's ICA will be showing a season of Japanese cinema since the Mid 1990's. They've called the season Back to the Future: Japanese Cinema Since the Mid-90s. It's set to run from the 4th to 13th February 2011.
Full Story
Details as follows:

Back to the Future: Japanese Cinema Since the Mid-90s
4 February 2011 - 13 February 2011
The Japan Foundation's annual touring programme of films returns to the ICA. In the past the programme has focussed on themes and trends in Japanese cinema; this year, the curators have explored a vital and fertile period of filmmaking. At the end of the 1980s, Japanese cinema was in the doldrums, although things began to turn around markedly during the next decade. This series presents popular but relatively unseen films from seven directors whose work was central to that artistic and commercial resurgence.
This season is produced and organised by the Japan Foundation with advice from Jasper Sharp.
