Happy weekend, everyone!
I hope you are all well.
The state of emergency in Japan continues to grind on as the government struggles to control Covid-19. It has been extended until the end of June. Rules have been relaxed for some business and cinemas will be able to open but with reduced hours.
This week was dedicated to posting about Nippon Connection 2021. I covered film highlights as well as the different sections: Nippon Cinema, Nippon Visions, Nippon Documentaries, Nippon Animation.
I watched the films And Soon the Darkness, Natural Born Killers, Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwelllers, and Takeshi Kitano’s A Scene at the Sea and Kids Return. The Heroic Purgatory podcast also launched its latest episode which is dedicated to Kitano’s HANA-BI. I had fun revisiting the director’s works and interesting talking about interpretations.
What is released this weekend? This is a two-part trailer post so come back tomorrow for more!
