Modern Japanese Cinema
Hosted by Wes Boudreau
Japan has a rich history in cinema dating back over one hundred years. The country has produced a beautiful array of influential directors and distinguished actors and actresses. The past twenty five years have truly been a remarkable quarter century of Japanese culture on the big screen, and in this panel I'll present a diverse stock of some of those highlights from 1989-2016. From slice-of-life characters who evoke the joy and the distress of contemporary life to bizarre, dreamlike humorists and satirists, there's a work of art waiting for you. This one hour panel is for all ages and will include film clips, analysis, DVD prizes, and forum styled discussion as we delve deeply into the blissful world of Modern Japanese Cinema.
