Two Films by Somai Shinji this weekend!

Event time: 
Friday, April 14, 2023 - 7:00pm
Event description: 
We’re fortunate to be able to present this week two of the lesser-known films of Somai Shinji, arguably the director who has influenced contemporary Japanese cinema the most, especially for his masterful use of the long take. These screenings are a kind of preview of the large Somai retro at the Japan Society in NYC April 23 to May 13.
PP Rider (ションペン・ライダー, 1983)
7pm, Friday, April 14, 53 Wall Street Auditorium
The Catch (魚影の群れ, 1983)
7pm, Saturday, April 15, 53 Wall Street Auditorium
Both films will be shown on DCP with English subtitles, and are free and are open to the public.
