Explore the evolution of supernatural gothic in Japanese cinema and culture.
Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House
Thursday 15 August, 7 PM
The ghost story, born of murder or unfulfilled desire, is a classic tale continually retold in film. This talk with writer and film curator Jasper Sharp will explore the evolution of supernatural gothic in Japanese cinema and culture.
After the talk, Film4 Summer Screen will be screening in the courtyard at Somerset House Throne of Blood, Director Akira Kurosawa’s spectacular and haunting version of Macbeth. Tickets for film screenings must be purchased separately.
Presented in association with Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House.
