Japanese Avant-garde and Experimental Film Festival 2018: Youthquake
21-23 September 2018
Kings College London, Close Up Film Centre, Barbican Cinema
This edition of JAEFF, in partnership with The Japan Foundation, riffs off the Oxford Dictionary’s word of 2017: ‘Youthquake’ – defined as ‘a significant cultural, political, or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people.’
Featuring classic avant-garde films from the 1960s and 1970s that examine youth counterculture, the student movements, and general currents of dissatisfaction and rebellion.
