Rediscovering the Beauty of Film and Film Technique


Time Out says

Set to re-open in May, the National Film Centre has been sorely missed among Tokyo's cinephiles during its two-month closure. But film buffs suffering from withdrawal symptoms will surely be happy to hear about the newly polished centre's first post-renovation programme, which is a true love letter to film: celebrating the Motion Picture and Television Engineering Society of Japan's 70th anniversary, it shines a light on the tech – from cinematography to post-production – behind classic Japanese movies. You can also look forward to a screenings programme of memorable films such as a remastered version of 1983 sci-fi adventure Toki o Kakeru Shojo, starring ’80s idol Tomoyo Harada, Nikkatsu's Jazz Musume Tanjo (1957) with Chiemi Eri and Yujiro Ishihara, and Typhoon Over Nagasaki (1957) by French director Yves Ciampi. The full programme is, once again, only available in Japanese.
