Japanese cinema in 75 minutes? Here's a challenge for you all: if you had 75 minutes to talk about Japanese cinema to a group of 16-17 year olds, including being able to show clips (but bearing in mind the ages of the kids... no Battle Royale, I think), what would you cover? I'm thinking bits of A Kurosawa, Godzilla, Samurai Cinema, 70s revenge flicks like Lady Snowblood, some K Kurosawa, J-Horror, and a touch on anime (though manga/anime are going to be a different lesson entirely). Would probably need to mention pinku eiga but not show anything, obviously. Bear in mind clips will have to come from the (reasonably) extensive Apple Towers DVD collection and/or YouTube. Um, I'm teaching the lesson tomorrow... or plan to, anyway!
