~After War….film series at JAPAN SOCIETY
Linda Hoaglund, Senior Film Curator, Japan Society, writes:
“SIXTY years ago, much of Japan lay ravaged by both its own militarism and America’s bombs.
As the nation resurrected itself, the vestiges of war gradually faded from view, but Japanese
memories of war and its aftermath linger, not only among individuals, but in the national
psyche. Since the war, Japanese filmmakers have represented those memories through
hundreds of films conceived in every imaginable style. The six films chosen here
provide a glimpse of how Japan has grappled with this legacy.”
looks to be incredibly interesting.
