Tokyo Northern Lights Festival 2017

Film, Drama

Denmark's Dogme movement, Ingmar Bergman's classics, artsy horror...Nordic cinema isn't a narrow category by any means, but this annual festival at Shibuya's Eurospace ambitiously attempts to pull things together, introducing viewers to the very best films from the cold north with an eclectic programme including both new releases and notable films from past years. This year's lineup includes flicks like Sumé – The Sound of a Revolution (2014), which tells the story of Greenland's first rock band, 'Icelandic-Japanese road movie' Cold Fever (1995), Hisham Zaman's refugee drama Letter to the King (2014) and Juho Kuosmanen's masterful The Happiest Day in the Life of Olli Mäki (2016). To accompany the films, you can look forward to a catering menu of Nordic grub and Danish beer.

Tickets go on sale January 7. Note that all films will be screened with Japanese subtitles only.
