The Japan Foundation Film Series Part 4

The Japan Foundation Film Series Part 4  The Best of Japanese Horror

For more than 20 years, the Japan Foundation has been showing subtitled Japanese films overseas as part of its efforts to introduce Japanese culture to the world. Last year the Japan Foundation began offering these English-subtitled prints to foreign residents of Japan so that they would have the opportunity to experience the wealth of Japanese cinema.

The first series shown was “Masters of Japanese Cinema,” which was held in June 2004, followed by “When Masters were Young―The 1960s” in March 2005 and “Flashback / Flashforward: Staging the Past” in June 2005.

Our newest series is titled “The Best of Japanese Horror.” You will find not only horror films based on Japanese traditional ghost stories, but also films that depict subtle feelings and an eerie atmosphere as props for portraying human drama.
