BFI Season: Two Masters of Japanese Cinema: Kaneto Shindo & Kozaburo Yoshimura

1 June - 31 July 2012, London

As Japanese director Kaneto Shindo celebrates his centenary, the BFI will hold a two-month tribute both to Shindo and his close collaborator and fellow director, Kozaburo Yoshimura, co-organised by the Japan Foundation.


This two-part retrospective presents a selection of major works by both directors. June’s programme focusing primarily on the 1950s, the period when their collaboration was at its closest, and July’s programme span the period stretching from the 1960s to the 21st century – into which Shindo has survived to become one of the last living links to the Golden Age of Japanese Film.

Films for Part One of the season can be found on the BFI website.
