Those of you in Tokyo--perhaps in anticipation of Kinema Club--may want 
to know about this event.

The 10th Japanese Film History Symposium at Meiji Gakuin University 
will focus on the singer/actress Yamaguchi Momoe this year. For those 
who do not know, Momoe was one of the major stars of the 1970s, 
producing many hit songs and appearing in numerous TV dramas and 12 
films. Her popularity was not confined to Japan, and even today one can 
buy her films on DVD in Hong Kong and across Asia. Retiring early in 
1980 after marrying her movie co-star Miura Tomokazu, she continues to 
be a legendary figure in Japan.

The Symposium will feature talks and papers by Yomota Inuhiko, Hase 
Masato, Ogura Chikako, An Ni, and Hiraoka Masaaki.

Time: 10am to 5pm, Saturday, June 18
Place: Room 2301, Building 1, Shirogane Campus, Meiji Gakuin University
