Monsters, Titans and Gangsters are in the Japanese Cinema Spotlight this month at Honolulu Museum of Art.
Also in the lineup are skate films, Taiwanese New Wave, NETPAC, Ulu Hou Festival and our curator’s top film picks.
As 2015 draws to a close the Doris Duke Theatre looks to treat movie going audiences with an intriguing film schedule that includes the Japanese Cinema Spotlight, which starts this weekend, HI Sk8 Films 2015, and a showcase of hidden film gems handpicked by the museum’s film curator Abbie Algar.
In addition to Japanese Cinema Spotlight, holiday season also includes a series of film festivals that feature highlights of Asian and Pacific cinema, including a trio—not a trilogy—of films by Taiwan-based director Tsai Ming-liang, the Ulu Hou Festival, the concluding film to the Ghost in the Shell: Arise series, and a marathon of Asian and Pacific films presented by the Network for the Promotion of Asia Pacific Cinema/USA set to take place the week before Thanksgiving.
