Bakuon Film Festival 2012

Tokyo's noisiest film festival returns at the start of the summer for another fortnight of 'explosions of sound'. Bakuon Film Festival started five years ago, with a simple concept: whatever the film, it had to be loud, and it had to sound good. This year's program includes Close Encounters of the Third Kind, schlock-horror remake Piranha 3D and Vincent Gallo starrer Essential Killing – and with towering speaker stacks lending an added whallop to each screening, it isn't for the faint-hearted. The festival concludes with an all-night screening of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill saga, preceded by a live set from garage-rock trio The 5.6.7.8's, who featured in the first film.
