Welcome to ‘Beyond Kurosawa’, YourScreen’s celebration of Japanese cinema, part of the British Film Institute’s ‘Japan 2021’ project.
In curating these seven films we wanted to offer an alternative take on the cinema of Japan, something to complement the Kurosawa / Ozu / Miyazaki classics that other streaming platforms and cinemas are offering, and to spotlight some less-recognised Japanese filmmakers.
And what’s more, Perfect Blue, Branded to Kill, Outlaw: Gangster VIP and Patema Inverted are all completely free to stream until Wednesday 10 November.
Screening as part of Japan 2021: 100 years of Japanese Cinema, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. bfijapan.co.uk
