Film Series: Landscape Theory - February 3rd - 5th

UCLA GSA Melnitz Movies has partnered with the Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies to invite film scholar Go Hirasawa to curate a series on Japanese Landscape Cinema. Filmmaker Masao Adachi is often viewed as the progenitor of Japanese "landscape theory." Inspired by Marxist film criticism of the 1970s, the theory posits that even the landscape around us is an expression of the dominant political power. The series will take place at James Bridges Theater, located in Melnitz Hall at UCLA on February 3rd, 4th, and 5th, with an opening night gala and a closing night lecture by Go Hirasawa. Each night will showcase two films, with the first screening beginning at 6pm.
