Introduction to the Golden Age of Japanese Cinema

May 27, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

A discussion of the key themes of the ‘Golden Age’ (1945-1960) of cinema in Japan

This talk by Dr. Jennifer Coates is part of our Summer Film series, organised in association with Berwick Film Society. You can book here for this talk; alternatively you can book for all three lectures by clicking here.

The period 1945-1960 was the peak era of film production and cinema attendance in Japan. This ‘Golden Age’ has been formative in how we understand Japanese cinema today, as well as how Japanese life has been imagined beyond Japan. In this lecture, we’ll look at some of the key tropes and common themes in this body of film production, and explore the historical and social contexts of the Golden Age of Japanese cinema.

These talks will be delivered via Zoom. If you haven’t used Zoom before, please go to www.zoom.us and look at the tutorials.
