Daiei Film Festival

Marking the 75th birthday of film studio Daiei, now known as publishing giant Kadokawa's filmmaking arm, the company's own cinema in Shinjuku rolls out this 21-flick programme featuring the very best of Daiei-produced film. Focusing particularly on movies with female protagonists, the lineup includes Kon Ichikawa's 1960 Cannes Jury Prize winner Odd Obsession, based on Junichiro Tanizaki's novel 'The Key', and three different film adaptations (1949, 1960 and 1967) of 'Naomi' ('Chijin no Ai'), another Tanizaki classic.
