The Urge for Survival: Kaneto Shindo at BAMcinématek

Presented by Benicio Del Toro

“My mind was always on the commoners, not on the lords, politicans, or anyone of name and fame. I wanted to convey the lives of down-to-earth people who live like weeds.”—Kaneto Shindo

Featuring the North American premiere of Shindo’s newest film, Postcard, plus week-long runs of Children of Hiroshima in its US theatrical premiere and The Naked Island in a new 35mm ’Scope print.
First a screenwriter, then an apprentice to Mizoguchi, Kaneto Shindo has since built one of the most richly diverse portfolios in Japanese film history—from humanistic docu-dramas and expressionistic ghost stories to erotic tales ofsex. On the occasion of Shindo’s 99th birthday on April 22nd and the North American premiere of his newest (and self-declared last) film Postcard, longtime fan Benicio Del Toro will present some of the director’s finest work. BAMcinématek is proud to kick off this national tour.

A limited number of special edition Kaneto Shindo t-shirts and posters created and donated by agnès b. will be on sale at BAM Rose Cinemas concessions throughout the series. Most of the proceeds benefit Japan Society's Earthquake Relief Fund.

T-shirts: $45
Posters: $15

This series is presented in partnership with the Japan Foundation and agnès b.
