5 Dec 2020 to 6 Dec 2020 Annual Event
The JFF Classics 2020 program, titled Provocation and Disruption: Radical Japanese Filmmaking from the 1960s to the 2000s, celebrates boundary-shattering films through Japanese cinematic history, notoriously recognised for their offbeat, rebellious and eye-opening qualities.
From subversive Japanese New Wave cinema to surrealist psychedelic expressions and gritty cyberpunk, Provocation and Disruption features boundary-shattering masterpieces from avant-garde Japanese auteurs including Seijun Suzuki, Shinya Tsukamoto and Nobuhiko Ōbayashi.
The program is all about the poetic, the abstract, the visceral and the abrasive in visionary Japanese cinema. This program broadly encapsulates films that were fiercely uncompromising and transcended convention, each leaving its unique mark on Japan’s film industry.
