LOVE LETTERS: Four Films by Shunji Iwai at Japan Society starting tomorrow, Friday, December 9th

Japan Society NY

LOVE LETTERS: Four Films by Shunji Iwai
When: December 9-23, 2022
Where: Japan Society NY
333 East 47th Street

One of the most original talents to emerge from Japan in the ’90s, director Shunji Iwai tapped into the dreams and lives of Japan’s youth with his lyrical meditations on the hardships of young adulthood, capturing pivotal and unforgettable moments of life. Balancing popular entertainment with arthouse predilection, Iwai’s exhilarating takes on the youth film provided a much-needed voice for the younger generation, offering delicate portraits of adolescence, ripe with poetic yearnings of grief, friendship and young love. Iwai’s sumptuous visual style coupled with his affecting and underground appeal opened a world of new possibilities in the ’90s cinescape—marking him as one of the most accomplished and unique filmmakers of his generation.
