All set for the Land of the Rising Sun! This course is designed as an invitation to travel through the Japan of yesteryear and today. Benshi chose works by essential directors of Japanese cinema (including Miyazaki, Takahata, Hosoda, Kitano and Kore-Eda). They are suitable for cinema-lovers aged 7 and over. These stories reflect prized qualities of Japanese culture - modesty and sensitivity -, and the importance of the family is a recurring theme in them, as is respect for environmental balance.
