Archipelago: Exploring the Landscape Of Contemporary Japanese Women Film Makers @  London - various venues

A special season dedicated to celebrating the diverse and exceptional work by the new generation of women screenwriter-directors who have emerged from the Japanese archipelago in the last fifteen years.

This programme will offer a glimpse into the distinctive voices of these women screenwriter-directors, whose work remains largely undiscovered outside their home country. Each with their particular style, these filmmakers have secured themselves a unique place in the Japanese film industry by occupying a narrative space that is neither mainstream nor fully arthouse, subverting genre boundaries, and rarely adhering to a solely women-centric vision.
