Asia Triennial Manchester/ Adventures in Super 8: the early films of Japan’s punk generation
Tue 9 – Tue 23 Oct

As part of the 2018 Asia Triennial Manchester, HOME is presenting a rare opportunity to experience some of the early, experimental works of directors, including Tsukamoto Shinya and Sono Sion, who would be at the forefront of a new wave a creativity that surged through Japanese cinema from the late 1980s onwards. In addition, we screen two landmark feature films that remind us of how these directors developed their ideas after these early creative outings.

This season is co-presented by Hong Kong International Film Festival, PIA Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival.

Tetsuo: The Iron Man (18)
Tue 9 Oct, 18:30
Dir Tsukamoto Shinya /JP 1989/67 mins/Japanese w/ Eng subtitles
Tomorô Taguchi, Kei Fujiwara, Nobu Kanaoka
Made on a micro-budget, on 16mm and in black and white, Tetsuo is one of the most influential Japanese films of all time. The story of a man whose flesh slowly merges with metal launched a plethora of inferior cyberpunk copies but none had the energy and sheer filmmaking flare of the original. Tetsuo is an astounding, energetic and original piece of filmmaking that today still has few peers.

This screening will be introduced by Sharon Kinsella, author of Money, Schoolgirls, and Rebellion in contemporary Japan and Adult Manga: Culture and Power.

Adventures in Super 8 Programme 1 (CTBA)
Thu 11 Oct, 20:40
Two experimental works including a challenging piece from maverick director Ishii Sogo and early award-winning work from Tetsuo director Tsukamoto Shinya.
Screening in this programme:
The Isolation of 1/880000 Dir: Ishii Sogo 1977, 43mins
The Adventure of Denchu-Kozo Dir: Tsukamoto Shinya 1988, 47min

Cold Fish (18)
(Tsumetai nettaigyo)
Tue 16 Oct, TIME TBC
Dir Sion Sono/JP 2010/146 mins/Japanese w/Eng subtitles
Mitsuru Fukikoshi, Denden, Asuka Kurosawa
Influenced by real murders, Cold Fish is the bloody tale of a tropical fish shop owner whose simple life becomes entangled with a murderous rival. The film presents a bleak, violent yet mesmerising image of contemporary Japanese family life and society.

Adventures in Super 8 Programme 2 (CTBA)
Tue 23 Oct, 18:10
This double bill of experimental films showcases Cold Fish director Sion Sono’s early work and the wonderfully oddball Tokyo Cabbageman K from Ogata Akira.

Tokyo Cabbageman K Dir: Ogata Akira, 1980, 59 min
