Between February 8 – 10 the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme returns to QUAD for eleven screenings of Japanese films, all never shown in the UK before. This year’s selection offers enlightening showcase of Japanese cinema through the narrative framework of “Love”. Love has provided a penetrating and perpetual source of cinema. Countless Japanese film makers have taken up this universal theme and explored what love means and does to human-beings. From recently released contemporary works to anime and classic masterpieces, the programme features some of the best examples of cinema from Japan and will look at how the perpetual theme of love has remained an inspirational source for the country’s filmmakers as well as how they stretched their imaginations to mirror the society they live in, telling stories with diverse voices, in an enthralling and delightful manner.

Tickets are available to individual screenings at QUAD’s normal ticket prices or a pass allowing entry to all eleven films can be bought for £50 (standard), £45 (concessions and QUAD members) and £35 (16 – 25 Year Olds – please bring ID showing date of birth.)
