Everybody has once told a lie or kept something hidden from others. Whether for good intentions or otherwise, it is a fundamental and intriguing aspect of human nature which has provided inspiration to countless storytellers and filmmakers.

With diverse cinematic voices, The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2018 features some of the best examples of cinema from Japan and will look at how the country’s filmmakers have been drawn to portraying the “(un)true” colours of human nature. The twists and turns of life portrayed in the programme are at times heart-rending, at other times hilarious, but always enthralling.

The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2018 is programmed and produced by Junko Takekawa, Paul Graham, Yuri Kubota and coordinated by Darian De La Cruz and Melisha Kontemeniotis. Special thanks to Kiyomi Nakazaki, Dr Alexander Jacoby and Jasper Sharp.
