Beyond Godzilla: Alternative Futures & Fantasies in Japanese Cinema
March 24—April 8, 2017
While Godzilla undoubtedly ranks among Japanese cinema's most well-known and beloved exports, the series of films in which he stars is only one of the many remarkable entries within the rich and varied universe of Japanese tokusatsu ("special effects") films. This seven-film series, a modified version of the program organized for the 2016 Far East Film Festival in Udine, Italy by film critic and writer Mark Schilling, goes beyond Toho's superstar monster to introduce a selection of titles that display the wide-ranging imagination of the Japanese sci-fi/fantasy genre, including innovative B-movies, kaiju eiga ("monster movies") and non-Godzilla classics involving director Ishiro Honda and effects maestro Eiji Tsuburaya.
