Japan Society: ZEN & ITS OPPOSITE: Essential (& Turbulent) Japanese Art House
The Japan Society are very excited to unveil their 2010-2011 Monthly Classics series ZEN & ITS OPPOSITE: Essential (& Turbulent) Japanese Art House, starting on October 15 (with Kwaidan). This new series peers into the dark side of the classical repertoire of the late 1950s and 1960s: from Masaki Kobayashi’s Kwaidan (1965), Kon Ichikawa’s Fires on the Plain (1959), Kaneto Shindo’s Onibaba (1964) to Nobuo Nakagawa’s Hell (1960) and Kihachi Okamoto’s Sword of Doom (1966).
