The Athene Francais Culture Center (near Suidobashi on the Chuo Line) 
will hold a retrospective of the films of Kuroki Kazuo from October 13 to 

For those who are unfamiliar with him, Kuroki was one of several 
influential directors to come out of documentary, working at Iwanami 
Productions in the late 50s and early 60s.  But it was his _Tobenai 
chinmoku_ in 1966, his first feature fiction film, that proved very 
influential in 1960s film culture.  He followed that up with _Kyuba no 
koibito_ (1969), _Nihon no akurei_ (1970), _Ryoma ansatsu_ (1974), 
_Matsuri no junbi_ (1975), _Tomorrow_ (1988), among others.

The retro is quite inclusive, showing his famous documentaries like _Waga 
ai Hokkaido_ (1962) and _Aru marason ranna no kiroku_ (1964) and some of 
his TV work (such as for the Zatoichi series).  Most of the days will 
feature talks between Kuroki and quests like Tsuchimoto Noriaki, Higashi 
Yoichi, Harada Yoshio, Tahara Soichiro, Otsu Koichiro, Kimura Takeo, 
Momoi Kaori, and Ishibashi Renji.

Tickets are 1400 yen (1100 in advance), with a three-ticket book costing 
3500 (3000 in advance).

Check out Pia for a detailed schedule or call the Athene Francais at 
03-3291-4339 between 1 and 8 pm.
