A set of seven films will be shown as a tribute to the illustrious careers of these two Japanese revolutionary filmmakers.
Koji Wakamatsu is a well known director of Japanese ‘pink films’ (soft pornographic theatrical films) such as Ecstasy of the Angels (1972) and Go, Go Second Time Virgin (1969). Pink films dominated Japanese cinema from the 60 to the 80s. His recent films have been Caterpillar (2010) and United Red Army (2007).
Masao Adachi is a director-screenwriter known for his collaborations with Koji Wakamatsu. He was nominated for the Asia Pacific Screen award for Caterpillar in 2010.
