AN ACTOR’S REVENGE 4k d. Kon Ichikawa, 1963 + Intro by Jennifer Coates at BFI (11 NOV 20:40) / Part of JAPAN 2021.

  • “Made to celebrate star Kazuo Hasegawa’s 300th performance in cinema, this gender-fluid period film casts him in a dual role as the sardonic gentleman thief Yamitaro and the vengeful onnagata (female impersonator in the kabuki theatre) pursuing the villains responsible for his parents’ suicide. Hasegawa’s versatile acting, Ichikawa’s flamboyant mise-en-scène and the incongruously eclectic musical score combine to make this an unforgettable cinematic experience.”

7 PRISONERS aka 7 Prisioneiros d. Alexandre Moratto, 2021.

AS TEARS GO BY d. Wong Kar Wai, 1988.
