An Actress with a Thousand Names: A Lecture by Inuhiko Yomota
Shirley Yamaguchi, who went by many names in her long, accomplished lifetime, remains one of the most enigmatic figures in Japanese film history. From her beginning as a Manchurian-born actress and entertainer to her tenure in Japanese politics, she led an extraordinary life marked by mystery and self-rediscovery amidst the most turbulent events of the 20th century. Yamaguchi’s multi-faceted legacy will be explored through a lecture and Q&A session by Inuhiko Yomota, a Japanese film historian, comparative literature scholar and the author of numerous books including Ri Koran to Hara Setsuko (Tokyo, Iwanami Shoten. 2011).
Part of the 2015 Globus Film Series The Most Beautiful: The War Films of Shirley Yamaguchi & Setsuko Hara.
