    Tokyo Drifters: 100 Years of Nikkatsu
    Date: Sat. January 19, 2013 - Sat. April 6, 2013.
    Location: TIFF Bell Lightbox (Reitman Square, 350 King St W) - Toronto, Canada

    Details:

    TIFF Cinematheque presents Tokyo Drifters: 100 Years of Nikkatsu to showcase 12 films from the golden age of Nikkatsu studio. Founded in 1912, the company had been forced to close down its production arm during World War II due to the government’s forced “rationalization” of the film industry. During the postwar production boom, however, Nikkatsu re-emerged as a force to be reckoned with. In 1954, Nikkatsu completed construction of a massive soundstage facility and lured young, promising talent away from such stodgily hierarchical rivals as Shochiku by guaranteeing these up-and-comers quick advancement from assistant to full director status. It was thus that such vibrant talents as Yuzo Kawashima, Seijun Suzuki, Koreyoshi Kurahara, and future Japanese New Wave icon Shohei Imamura were given an early chance to strut their stuff.
