East Side Stories: Japanese Cinema Depicting the Lives of Youth

31 Jan 20146 Feb 2014

This year’s Japan Foundation UK annual touring film programme offers an enlightening and expansive introduction to Japanese cinema through the framework of ‘youth’.

Showcasing a vast variety of styles and tones, this programme takes a broad look at how the adults of tomorrow have been portrayed in Japanese cinema over the years by a number of established and up-and-coming directors, through stories of individuals struggling to find a sense of meaning and identity within the world.
