Hi everyone,

I am writing to let you know that Japan Society in New York has organized a film series curated by Go Hirasawa titled "The Other Japanese New Wave: Radical Films from 1958-61," scheduled for April 5-27.

Information can be found here: https://www.japansociety.org/film

Filmmakers included in the series are Kiju Yoshida, Koreyoshi Kurahara, Eizo Yamagiwa, Tsutomu Tamura, Eitaro Morikawa, Osamu Takahashi, Toshio Matsumoto, Shinkichi Noda, and Katsumi Hirano and Hiroo Ko (Nihon Daigaku).

The series includes 35mm and 16mm prints from the National Film Archive of Japan, 35mm prints from Japan Foundation, and recent 2K DCP transfers from Shochiku. We'll be creating new English subtitles for some of these.

If anyone is interested in hosting the series in part or in full at their local cinematheque or university after our run, please let me know and I can pass along rights holder and print info.
