Cult! Wild Japan

During the 1960s and 1970s, a subversive edge infiltrated Japanese cinema, with many younger directors venting rage and frustration against the still prevalent yet outmoded social conventions. The result – a goldmine of excessive and unique films, rarely seen in cinemas outside Japan – until now. The unbridled energy and passion of these films is matched only by their outrageous visual beauty. It’s a smorgasbord for your eyes, a trip for your mind and a jolt to your film-going sensibilities. Welcome to Wild Japan… Season passes: See all six films for only £21.00 full / £15.00 concs or choose three films for £12.75 full / £9.75 concs (Passes subject to availability.)
