About the Course:

Ever wondered what makes a horror movie truly frightening? An action movie so intense? A drama actually meaningful- or even a little heartwarming?... Then this might be the DeCal for you! Ponder these questions while watching contemporary Japanese films that push the boundaries of genre many of us are accustomed to.

The focus will be on films directed by Kurosawa Kiyoshi and Miike Takashi.

Please see the syllabus (subject to change) for details.
