Brisbane readers might know that the Gallery of Modern Art are currently screening a program of films dear to our hearts here at HC, entitled Cult Japan. And as usual for QAGOMA’s cinema seasons, they certainly haven’t done things by halves.
The program covers a huge swathe of post-war Japanese cinema with a particular focus on the weird and wonderful, from Ghibli anime classics like Nausicaä, through Seijun Suzuki’s powder-blue yakuza flick Tokyo Drifter to modern cult cinema like Sion Sono’s gonzo Why Don’t You Play in Hell?.
Courtesy of QAGOMA, we have two double passes to give away to Cult Japan — they will get you into any screening, and the size of the program means you’re absolutely spoilt for choice. These are first-in, best-dressed: just fill in the form below to enter!
Update: tickets are now spoken for — you people are fast!
The season runs from 3 July to 2 September 2015, and you can find all the details on the official page. To whet your appetite further, here’s the trailer for the program:
