Japan Society's new film series, As Cherry Blossoms Fall: Films & Scenes of Sakura, continues tonight with this screening of After the Flowers at 7 PM.

Synopsis: If Jane Austen had ever written an edo-period love story or Ozu Yasujiro directed a swordplay drama, it might have looked a little like After the Flowers, an exquisitely mounted second feature by Nakanishi Kenji in which all emotions are beneath social surfaces and swordplay is held back to only two life-changing fights.

Tickets: $12 general admission, $9 for Japan Society members, seniors and students

Buy Tickets for AFTER THE FLOWERS Online or call the Japan Society Box Office at (212) 715-1258, Mon. - Fri. 11 am - 6 pm, Weekends 11 am - 5 pm.

The film series As Cherry Blossoms Fall is presented in association with the Japan Foundation and runs through April 14, 2012. Series information here. The film series is part of Sakura — Spring Renews, Beauty Blooms.
