カメラを止めるな!

ONE CUT OF THE DEAD
(Special Screening with Reel Asian )

Director Shinichiro Ueda’s tiny indie production opened in two small cinemas but by positive word of mouth alone shot to the top of the box-office.

A low-budget zombie movie – shot in one take – turns real when actual zombies attack the crew. But then the film abruptly transforms into something entirely different: Japan’s smartest comedy of the year, a father-daughter story, a sharp film industry satire and a movie about the value of perseverance. Winner of film festival awards around the world.

Starring Harumi Shuhama, Kazuaki Nagaya, Mao and Takayuki Hamatsu

Thursday November 15 at 7pm / 96 min
In Japanese with English subtitles

KURARA
-The Dazzling Life of Hokusai’s Daughter-

NHK’s handsome dramatization of the life of O-Ei, the daughter of Hokusai, one of Japan’s most renowned 19th-century ukiyo-e artists.

When Hokusai grew too old to wield a brush, O-Ei painted for him and devoted her life to art, founding her own style of painting while helping her father.

Preceded by Alice Shin’s short film HARU’S NEW YEAR with the director and cast members in attendance.
