Wakamusha + Director Q+A

This screening will be followed by a live Q+A with the director. Wataru (Ryota Bando), a quiet worker at a factory, Eiji (Rion Takahashi), a hot-blooded employee at a restaurant, and Mitsunori (Naoya Shimizu), seemingly gentle a caregiver, are childhood friends. On a late autumn afternoon, with time on their hands, they, in the name of ‘Reformation’ aimlessly bare their fangs at the petty transgressions and discrimination of the people in the town. This ‘Reformation’ gradually morphs into ‘violence.’ ‘Wakamusha’ portrays a youth ensemble drama with three protagonists who are up-and-coming young generation actors, Ryota Bando, Rion Takahashi, and Naoya Shimizu. A ground-breaking film has emerged in Japanese cinema, shedding light on universal questions of ‘good and evil', ‘life and death', ‘self and others', with a unique perspective through sharp dialogue and unsettling but picturesque shots.Foreign DramaPT1H43M12A2024-06-27
