Sion Sono is now a major mainstream name (e.g. Shinjuku Swan and Tokyo Tribe), but the visionary director cut his teeth as an avant-garde auteur and enfant terrible of Japanese cinema. Marking the wide release of Hisohiso Boshi, Sono's new sci-fi take on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, Shinjuku's Cinema Qualite looks back at the director's career with a seven-film programme featuring rarities like bizarre thriller-fantasy piece The Room (1992), experimental 1997 flick I Am Keiko and macabre social commentary-meets-splatter film Cold Fish (2011). Check out the full programme here (in Japanese only).
Note that all films will be shown without subtitles.
