Asian film extravaganza

Yomiuri Shimbun

The third in NHK's biennial series of Asian film festivals, "Asian Film 
Festival" will be held Dec. 11-19 this year.
The event is an opportunity to see coproductions between the public
television corporation and emerging directors in South Korea, Nepal, Iran 
and Australia.  Screenings include Peppermint Candy, the Korean-Japanese 
film that opened this year's prestigious Pusan International Film Festival, 
the first such coproduction to be formally released in South Korea after the 
ban on Japanese culture was lifted. There will also be screenings of two 
films made using NHK's High Vision technology.
A selection of new wave films from Thailand and Vietnam will be an added 
attraction. The event will be held at the Japan Foundation Forum in Akasaka

Nanboku Line.
