JFF 2018 Classics Program (Melbourne)

Thursday 22nd November 2018 - Sunday 2nd December 2018

The Japanese Film Festival (JFF) presents a FREE classic film program from 22 November 2 December.

Venue: Australian Centre for the Moving Image

Tickets: Free - booking required

The Festival will present a curated program: Passion & Obsession with an abridged version in Melbourne.

Featuring works adapted from novels by celebrated authors such as Junichiro Tanizaki and Kyoka Izumi, the program showcases influential works from cinematic masters from the Japanese Golden Age and New Wave.

Highlights include: The Pornographers, Cannes Palme d’Or-winning filmmaker Shohei Imamura’s darkly comical portrayal of a pornographer hustling to keep his business alive amidst Japan’s post-war economic boom; and Japanese auteur Seijun Suzuki’s multi-award-winner Kagero-za, an adaptation of Kyoka Izumi’s story of a playwright who meets a beautiful woman he suspects is the ghost of his patron's deceased wife.
