Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters + Patriotism
Reimagined in vibrant, expressionist colour, Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters marries an author to his fiction—a vivid middle where man and myth collide.
JAEFF: Pigs and Battleships + Kokutai (15*)
The film that launched Shohei Imamura’s career, this is an agile, whip-smart mockery of a greed-driven, post-occupation Japan.
JAEFF:Death by Hanging + The Educational System of an Empire
In his usual fashion, Nagisa Oshima faces a derisive issue head on, making a farce out of a (still) ongoing human rights issue—capital punishment.
