POPUP JAPAN – CINEMA – LOST IN TRANSLATION (2003) @ Proud East | England | United Kingdom

Proud & The Nomad bring the tastes and energy of Japan to London with new Pop-up Japan! Whether you want to connect with traditional culture, sample new, fresh flavours or experience a neon-lit night to remember, Proud has a corner of vibrant Japan to enthral every visitor. Embrace the contemporary sounds, tastes and vibrant street-life of Japan this March and venture down the blossom-lined paths of Regent’s Canal to Proud East. With hands-on workshops, eclectic cinema and the delicate tastes of Japanese fine cuisine, Proud’s pop-up fuses Tokyo’s dynamic cultural hub with century old customs.

Sofia Coppola’s widely acclaimed film balances poignancy and pathos, in Tokyo… Bob Harris (Bill Murray) is a well-known American actor whose career has gone into a tailspin; needing work, he takes a very large fee to appear in a commercial for Japanese whiskey to be shot in Tokyo, where he meets Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) at the bar. Twentysomething Charlotte is married to a successful photographer who is in Tokyo on an assignment, leaving her to while away her time while he works. Beyond their shared bemusement and confusion with the sights and sounds of contemporary Tokyo, Bob and Charlotte share a similar dissatisfaction with their lives; the spark has gone out of Bob’s marriage, and he’s become disillusioned with his career. Meanwhile, Charlotte is puzzled with how much John has changed in their two years of marriage, while she’s been unable to launch a creative career of her own. Bob and Charlotte become fast friends, and as they explore Tokyo, they begin to wonder if their sudden friendship might be growing into something more…
