Meiko Kaji Programme

Meiko Kaji Programme

Time Out says

Hidden among the love hotels in Shibuya's Maruyamacho, Cinema Vera is known for its focus on double features highlighting both classics and obscure indie fare. Expect a little bit of both at this programme dedicated to actress and singer Meiko Kaji, who is celebrating a half-century in the biz this year. Catch films like the original Joshu Sasori ('Female Convict Scorpion') series, a parade of no-holds-barred exploitation action in which Kaji plays relentless jailbird Nami Matsushima, and 1973 thriller Lady Snowblood, a major inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill – in which Kaji's ballad 'Shura No Hana' accompanied the bloody end of O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu).
