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.
Underwater Love (18)
Japan 2011 83m
Dir: Shinji Imaoka
In this fantastical tale, a young female factory worker is on the verge of marrying her boss when a mystical water sprite known as a kappa enters her life. What follows is a riotous and charming mixture of songs, dancing and sex which combines the musical form with the wild world of the Japanese pink film genre. Acclaimed director Imaoka, works alongside famed cinematographer Christopher Doyle (Hero, Chungking Express) with the memorable songs provided by French/German electro-indie band Stereo Total.
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).
