The 1960s brought seismic changes to Japanese cinema. In this richly illustrated panel discussion, our special guests will consider how the landscape of Japanese cinema changed between the 1960s and the 1990s. Our invited speakers will explore what films, directors, actors, genres and social and political developments defined each decade, and comment on their impact on Japanese cinema of the 21st century.
