These films not only represent the vision of cinematic legends such as Kenji Mizoguchi and Yoshishige Yoshida, but also offer glimpses into different faces of Japan throughout the decades – from star-crossed lovers divided by class in the Meiji era to early modern feminists fighting against the societal status quo.

The screenings run Wednesdays and select Saturdays and Sundays for free. For the full program and more information, visit the AGNSW’s website.
