It’s always worth checking out the new three-monthly programmes at Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art cinema, and the January to March line up presents a few pearls of Asian cinema that you may want to catch on the big screen, even if you have seen them before (because I don’t know about you, but any opportunity to see Seven Samurai at the cinema is to be taken, as far as I’m concerned):
- Kuroneko (1968, dir. Kaneto Shindou) – Sat 31 Jan, 1pm
- Kwaidan (1964, dir. Masaki Kobayashi) – Wed 4 Feb, 6pm
- Seven Samurai (1954, dir. Akira Kurosawa) – Fri 13 Feb, 6pm
- Princess Mononoke (1997, dir. Hayao Miyazaki) – Web 4 Mar 8.15pm
Tickets are ridiculously cheap ($9 Adult!) and can be purchased at GoMA 1 hour prior to screening or in advance via the website.
