QUAD’s regular Asian cinema night Satori Screen presents a short programme of musicals from Japan, crossing a wide variety of styles and genres in both music and cinematic style.

In the early ‘80s Japanese musician Haruo Chicada created a concept album called The Legend Of Stardust Brothers as the soundtrack to a film that did not exist. In 1985 he met experimental filmmaker Macoto Tezka, who had never made a feature film before, and the two set about creating a real movie inspired by this ‘fake soundtrack’. The storyline follows Shingo and Kan who are brought together as a band by a sinister impresario to make an assault on the charts. The bumpy path to fame and fortune is depicted in a fantastic clash of primary colours, 80s fashions and hugely catchy tunes which has now been revived at international film festivals and hailed as a lost classic.

This screening will include an introduction by Satori Screen’s Peter Munford

Tickets: £9.50 standard, £7.00 concessions, £3.50 (16 – 25 year olds).

Part of the Japan Sings! season, running 7 – 9 November at QUAD. Buy a season pass to see all 5 films in this season at a reduced rate.
