Our next film is Kikujiro no Natsu or Kikujiro (1999) directed by Takeshi Kitano, an iconic actor who also stars in the film. The score was composed by Joe Hisaishi, and tells the story of a young boy searching for his mother during his summer vacation in bittersweet episodic scenes. 

Watch the Trailer.

The Japan Society of Boston Film Club meets on the last Wednesday of every other month to discuss great classic and contemporary Japanese films. The purpose of our club is to support the  community of Japan enthusiasts in the New England region by creating a space for thoughtful and sociable discussion.
