Aoyama’s Film Screening

Lakeside Murder Case(2005, English subtitles). Aoyama’s most recent film about entrance exams, a not-so-normal family, and a murder. Combining genre cinema with a rigorous critique of postwar Japanese society, Aoyama Shinji is one of the leading figures of contemporary Japanese culture, directing award-winning films such as Eureka (which the Los Angeles Times said “will become one of the landmarks of the world cinema of the first decade of the 21st century”), writing prize-winning novels, and becoming an intellectual force with his criticism and theory. Yale University is pleased to have Aoyama visit for nearly two weeks to show four of his films, direct two weekend workshops, and participate in several discussions on Japanese film and culture.
