Japanese Cinema for Busy People II Special

Date: 3 December 2008 from 6.30pm
Venue: Japan Foundation, London

The Japan Foundation will host this special lecture as a supplement to our successful series Japanese Cinema for Busy People II.

In this event, Jasper Sharp will provide an insight into the history and development of one of the most intriguing genres of Japanese cinema, Pink Film; the cultural phenomenon distinct from the cheaply produced world of Adult Video.

This event will focus on the art of this form of filmmaking and its position in relation to the Japanese cinema industry.

Jasper Sharp is co-editor of Japanese film website Midnight Eye, co-author (with Tom Mes) of The Midnight Eye Guide to New Japanese Film and author of the new book Behind the Pink Curtain: The Complete History of Japanese Sex Cinema.

Attendees to this event will be able to purchase a signed copy of this book at a special discount rate.

This event is free to attend but booking is essential. To register to attend, please contact event@jpf.org.uk giving your name and those of any guests.


This seminar will accompany the BFI’s season, Wild Japan: Sex in Japanese Cinema of the 60s and 70s.
