Scattered Clouds - Japanese Cinema in the 1960s

Thursday evenings 6.30 - 9.00pm for six weeks 5th November - 10th December 2020

Following the golden age of the 1950s, Japanese cinema continued to expand in new directions, but faced increasing challenges as box office takings steadily declined. Major directors such as Kurosawa and Naruse continued to enjoy relative creative freedom, but the studios mostly concentrated on cheaply produced gangster, samurai and monster films. At the same time, a 'new wave' of directors created daring experiments that would win international acclaim. This stimulating new course will explore the many aspects of this diverse era of film-making, with complete films and numerous extracts.
