日本デー!! Directors Lounge once again brings the Far East west, taking a diverse stack of short experimental films from its international trove in Berlin and making its way over to Düsseldorf’s annual German-Japanese festival known as Japan Day. Every manner of Japan will fill the screen at the Black Box Kino in the Filmmuseum in a presentation that continues DL’s vital and well-attended annual contribution to the event. Honourable Japanophile is most humbly invited to witness films from, about and inspired by Land of the Rising Sun. Irasshaimase, いらっしゃいませ!!
