August Movie Night: Poison Berry In My Brain

30-year-old Ichiko spots 20-something Ryochi at a party. Her attraction is immediate, yet she stands frozen, unable to decide whether or not to speak with him. Inside her head, a fractious committee meeting is taking place. The participants are her emotions: reason, negatively, optimism, memory and impulse… Based on Setona Mizushiro’s 2009 josei manga series the film plays like a live-action Japanese companion piece to Pixar’s Inside Out. Very funny, emotionally engaging and surprisingly mature in its themes, the film showcases Yoko Maki’s comedic gifts and is enlivened by a very energetic and hilarious supporting cast.

Starring Yoko Maki, Hidetoshi Nishijima, Ryunosuke Kamiki, Yuki Furukawa, Sungha, Yo Yoshida, Hiyori Sakurada, Kazuyuki Asano

飲み会で出会って以来気になっていた青年・早乙女と偶然にも再会を果たす。彼女の頭の中では、「理性」「ポジティブ」「ネガティブ」「衝動」「記憶」という5つの思考がせめぎあい、声を掛けるか否かで会議を繰り広げはじめる。その結果、早乙女を食事に誘ったいちこは彼の部屋にまで押しかけてやがて2人は付きあうことになるが……水城せとなの同名コミックをもとに、彼女の脳内にある5つの思考を擬人化して描いたラブコメディ。

September Movie Night: Miss Hokusai

Keiichi Hara’s extraordinary animated film tells the story of O-Ei, the little-known daughter of the famed ukiyo-e artist Hokusai, creator of some of Japan’s most iconic images. An outspoken 23-year-old and the inheritor of her father’s artistic gifts and stubbornness, she shares his home, and serves as his assistant, often completing or redoing works for him. Unsophisticated, naïve, and fearless, she tugs insistently at the bridle of Edo tradition and propriety, showing her gentle side only

O-Ei’s story has also been told in Canadian author Katherine Govier’s excellent novel, The Ghost Brush. Ms Govier will introduce the screening with a reading from her novel and a discussion of O-ei’s life.when caring for her blind sister O-Nao. Miss Hokusai is mature, unsentimental and startlingly beautiful. Lovers of Japanese traditional culture and anime fans alike will find much to enjoy. Winner of the Satoshi Kon Award for best animated feature film at Montreal’s 2015 Fantasia International Film Festival.

Voiced by An Watanabe and Yutaka Matsushige
