Finding Serenity in Chaos: A Nobuhiko Ōbayashi Tribute

When

Every day, 11am to 5pm Thursday 11 March to Sunday 14 March

The Japanese Film Festival presents a special film series that celebrates the late director Nobuhiko Ōbayashi (1938-2020), an endlessly innovative filmmaker, screenwriter and editor.

This program comprises the director’s final four films, which represent his life's mission to inspire peace through his works. Casting Blossoms to the Sky, Seven Weeks and HANAGATAMI are a trilogy of films conceived in response to the nuclear disaster following the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami, in which Ōbayashi ruminates on war, nuclear power, community and the lasting impact of tragedy and loss. Labyrinth of Cinema saw Ōbayashi return to his hometown to shoot his final opus, a culmination of these themes and an homage to his love for cinema.

Bookings are now available in person and online (online bookings incur a $2.50 booking fee)
