Kagurazaka Film Festival 2015

Film, Drama

Ginrei Hall, Kagurazaka's venerable shrine to cinema, holds up the neighbourhood's local film history with this four-day programme of special screenings. Centred around the work of veteran actress Mariko Kaga, a born-and-bred Tokyoite, and director Yoshimitsu Morita, who used to help out at Ginrei Hall before getting his big break, the lineup features a total of six movies: Morita's The Family Game (1983), Like Asura (2003) and Lost Paradise (1997), plus Muddy River (1981), With Beauty and Sorrow (1965) and Mahjong Horoki (1984), all featuring Kaga in a central role.
