Film Talk

CUT with Director Amir Naderi

Wednesday, December 14, 2011   19:30 - 21:00

Speaker:
  • Amir Naderi

Japanese cinema was once the most admired cinema in the world. When they were young, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Francis F. Coppola were fighting to parade around Hollywood next to Akira Kurosawa. Star Wars or Kill Bill are directly influenced by Japanese directors. Mikio Naruse, Yasujiro Ozu or Kenji Mizoguchi have left works that illuminates still today the movie industry. Yet Japan seems the only place on the planet that is unaware of the richness of its cinematographic tradition.

Amir Naderi refuses to bow. A veteran Iranian-American director, Mr Naderi is about to release CUT. CUT is the movie of his life. He took 10 years to finish it. CUT is an homage to the greatness of Japanese cinema as well as a wake-up call to the creative spirits of Japan. He will talk about his experience of working with Japanese star actors, Hidetoshi Nishijima, Takako Tokiwa, Takashi Sasano and others; the necessity of Japanese classic cinema; and the future of cinema as a form of art and entertainment. Soon at a theater near you, but already at TUJ on December 14.
