The Exeter Phoenix is welcoming The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme back to Studio 74 for an enlightening showcase of Japanese cinema this spring, with a selection of acclaimed films focusing on themes of ‘secrets and lies’.
With diverse cinematic voices, the programme features some of the best examples of cinema from Japan and examines how the country’s filmmakers are experimenting with portrayals of the darker side of human nature.
The results can at times be thrilling, at other times hilarious, but always enthralling.
Studio 74 will show six Japanese titles throughout February and March as part of this inspiring collection of contemporary Japanese cinema.
The diverse programme includes tales of lust and redemption, anime, and a special one-off screening of the best new short films from emerging Japanese filmmaking talent, programmed in association with Tokyo’s Short Shorts Film Festival.
The Japanese Foundation Touring Film Programme will feature in Studio 74 from Tuesday 20 February until Tuesday 27 March.
Tickets are £7, or immerse yourself in the season and enjoy 3 films for the special price of £18. Tickets are available via the Exeter Phoenix website or by calling Exeter Phoenix Box Office on 01392 667080.
