Nippon Connection Festival
Nippon Connection, the largest showcase of Japanese cinema outside of Japan, comes to Yale! A cornucopian selection of the best works shown at the 2007 edition, held in Frankfurt, Germany, will be screened over two weeks, featuring major studio films, indie features and shorts, and experimental animation. Highlights include Maison de Himiko, the winner of the Nippon Connection Audience Award, a video feature by Sono Shion (Suicide Circle), and an outrageous “pink film” (soft adult movie).
