Immerse yourself in the best of contemporary Japanese indie cinema via the annual Chicago Japanese Film Collective festival, which will show 13 films via both in-person and virtual screenings for its second year. The 2022 theme, "Love," spans a multi-genre list of titles including the documentary Ainu - Indigenous People of Japan and My House, a stylized black-and-white look at two interwoven storylines by director Tsutsumi Yukihiko (who will also receive the CJFC Career Achievement Award this year). Grab tickets for showings at the Gene Siskel Film Center and The Logan Theatre, or hang indoors and stream selections online—you'll find a full schedule on the CJFC website.
