Cannes lineup announced - One More...

Don't forget Katsuhito Ishii's "The Taste of Tea" ("Cha no
aji") in the Director's Fortnight program. The screening
schedule hasn't been posted on the official site yet, but
according to a news item in the media earlier this month,
this will also be the opening film of the program (the
first time a Japanese film has had the honours). Ishii
directed "Shark Skin Man and Peach Hip Girl" and was
involved in the anime sequence in "Kill Bill" pt. 1.
I worked on the screenplay translation for this film and
it's a charmingly surreal effort, weighing in at almost
two and a half hours.
For those in Tokyo, there's a tea exhibition at Printemps
Ginza running Apr. 27th - May 5th, featuring visual
materials from the movie.
