Japan Society Film Program


The Japan Society Film Program has offered a diverse selection of Japanese films, from classics to contemporary independent productions. The Program has included retrospectives of seminal directors, thematic series and special screenings of international, U.S. and NY premieres. Several original film series curated by Japan Society have traveled to other U.S. venues in tours organized by the Film Program. The Film Program has provided English subtitles for films which have never been screened outside of Japan. Accompanying lectures help place the films in their aesthetic and social contexts, and filmmakers often introduce and discuss their work.JAPAN CUTS, the Film Program's yearly film festival, offers a diverse selection of the most notable recent films from Japan, giving New Yorkers a first look at blockbusters and cinematic landmarks from cutting-edge independents to highly innovative animations. In its third year, JAPAN CUTS is the only large-scale annual Japanese film festival in North America that brings a sizable slice of Japan's contemporary film scene to New York City. The program is replete with exclusive Q&As with filmmakers, special events and more.

Mad, Bad... & Dangerous to Know: Three Untamed Beauties

Festival
Festival presentation: 

March 31 - April 18

At the opposite end of the stereotype of docile Japanese women—heroic good mothers, chaste daughters and hardworking faithful wives—actresses Ayako Wakao, Mariko Okada and Meiko Kaji embodied the transgression of limits, breaking rules, flouting norms and generally upsetting everyone.

This series explores the idea of unconventional beauty that these spellbinding actresses created through an unparalleled body of films. Both Wakao and Okada were muses and inspiration for two major film directors, Yasuzo Masumura and Kiju (Yoshishige) Yoshida, respectively, while Kaji navigated between filmmakers, a wild card of Japanese cinema at the time. Put together, their films delineate what one could call an aesthetic of “convulsive beauty” (André Breton).

Featuring a line-up of 13 films of many different genre, from anti-melodrama to jidaigeki, girl gang movies to women in prison films, with entries from Kiju Yoshida, Yasuzo Masumura and Toshiya Fujita. Don't miss the DRESSED TO KILL party following the opening screening of "Tattoo," Wednesday, March 31, 2010 at 7:30 PM.
