The Best Films You've Never Seen: Japan Edition

'The Best Films You've Never Seen' continues with two masterpieces of Japanese cinema, Hayao Miyazaki's 'My Neighbour Totoro' (1988) and Yasujirō Ozu's 'Tokyo Story' (1953).

Join us for a night of luminous Japanese cinema with Hayao Miyazaki's revered 1988 animated fantasy My Neighbour Totoro, followed by a 70th anniversary screening of Yasujirō Ozu's poetic 1953 masterpiece Tokyo Story.

Both films explore inter-generational family dynamics and the changing place of children in post-WWII Japanese society. In 2022, My Neighbour Totoro appeared for the very first time in the Sight & Sound list, coming in at number 72. Ozu's Tokyo Story continues to hold strong within the top 10 'Greatest Films of All Time', coming in at number 4. Join us for this special screening of two wonderful films at one of the world's most iconic cinemas, The Capitol.
