GINMAKU Japanese Film Festival (Zürich)

Nov 6, 2014 - Nov 8, 2014

GINMAKU Japanese Film Festival at HOUDINI in Zürich

500 movies are produced in Japan annually, but only a few are screened abroad. This is the first attempt to introduce the Swiss audience to Japanese independent movies – at Zürich’s newest cinema hotspot: The Houdini.

The line-up includes six productions filmed between 2012 and 2014 – most of them being Swiss premieres. The organizer, Mrs. Mizuki Mazbara, has handpicked these movies as they capture the current Japan at their best. And as a special goodie for movie enthusiasts, several screenings are followed by Q&A sessions with directors and actresses.

 

Forma (2013)

– “A suspenseful drama about a tragedy caused by a cycle of hatred.”
Thu (Nov 6) 7:30 PM / Sat (Nov 8) 5:40 PM

 

My House (2012)

– “There is a ‘house’ standing that no one has ever seen in the corner of a city. It is the revolutionary ‘house’ that is collapsible and portable, moving free to anywhere.”

The Frivolous (2013)

– “A unique documentary film based on never wining political candidate Mac AKASAKA, president of the smile party.”
