We are pleased to announce the dates for the TORONTO JAPANESE FILM FESTIVAL 2014 are June 12 to 27.
We will be announcing the first 12 films of our 18-film line-up at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre’s screening of YURUSAREZARUMONO (UNFORGIVEN) on March 27 at 7pm.
Director Lee Sang-iI remakes Clint Eastwood’s UNFORGIVEN as a samurai film with Ken Watanabe in the lead role. In Meiji Era Hokkaido a formerly lethal swordsman of the shogunate, who has since renounced killing, is driven by poverty to once again take up the sword as a bounty hunter. The film was screened in the Special Presentation section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
