Once Upon a Time in Japan examines the country’s past through the eyes of contemporary filmmakers such as Koreeda and Takashi Miike. Characterising a trend in recent Japanese cinema, this year’s programme showcases a series of works by both emerging and established filmmakers whose aim is to reinterpret, reinvent or relive moments of times past.
Through a variety of genres, styles and tones, from horror, drama, action to animation, this programme aims to give UK audiences the broadest and most colourful insight into Japan’s history than any of our past Japan film seasons, and explore how the past has been brought to life through the eyes of contemporary filmmakers.
The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme is produced and organised by the Japan Foundation with kind support from the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
