An agonizing portrait of desperate Japanese soldiers stranded in a strange land during World War II, Kon Ichikawa’s Fires on the Plain is a compelling descent into psychological and physical oblivion. Denied hospital treatment for tuberculosis and cast off into the unknown, Private Tamura treks across an unfamiliar Philippine landscape, encountering an increasingly debased cross section of Imperial Army soldiers, who eventually give in to the most terrifying craving of all. Grisly yet poetic, Fires on the Plain is one of the most powerful works from one of Japanese cinema’s most versatile filmmakers.

Duro relato antibélico que narra la desesperada situación, abocada a la derrota, que está sufriendo el ejército japonés en Filipinas en 1945, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Ichikawa retrata de forma implacable, con su habitual mirada cínica y humor negro, las correrías de un grupo de soldados japoneses y su lucha por su supervivencia recurriendo a la violencia, al robo e incluso al canibalismo.

A spectacle of magnificent proportions, Kon Ichikawa's Tokyo Olympiad ranks among the greatest documents of sport ever committed to film. Utilizing glorious widescreen cinematography, Ichikawa examines the beauty and rich drama on display at the 1964 Summer Games in Tokyo, creating a catalogue of extraordinary observations that range from the expansive to the intimate. The glory, despair, passion, and suffering of Olympic competition are rendered with lyricism and technical mastery, culminating in an inspiring testament to the beauty of the human body and the strength of the human spirit.

Legendary Japanese director Ichikawa Kon's 1976 film The Inugami Family, holds a very special place in Japan's long tradition of supernatural suspense. Based on Yokomizo Seishi's epic work, the slow-burning family murder mystery is a highly influential title in the director's celebrated filmography and just about required viewing for Japanese cinema fans. When tycoon Inugami Sahei passes away, he unexpectedly leaves the family fortune to outsider Tamayo on the condition that she marry one of the Inugami grandsons - Sukekiyo, Suketake, or Suketomo - pitting blood against blood. Soon afterwards, members of the family begin to show up dead, one by one. Detective Kindaichi Kosuke is called in to investigate the murders, and the truth is slowly revealed as he happens upon years of hidden skeletons and a shocking family secret.

This wildly melodramatic tale of a kabuki female impersonator who exacts a long-delayed revenge on the men who drove his parents to suicide is played out against a backdrop of comic rivalries between thieves in the Tokyo underworld. Kazuo Hasegawa plays the dual role of the actor and the thief in a film which celebrates his 300th screen appearance. A heady mixture of swooning romanticism and stylised action, with a soundtrack that ranges from traditional Japanese music to lush Hollywood strings and cocktail jazz, An Actor's Revenge is a cinematic tour de force.

Kon Ichikawa's Hakai (The Broken Commandment) began in 1961 as a televised dramatisation of Toson Shimazaki's novel of the same title first published in 1906. Toson's pioneering work of social realism created a sensationon television, so the director collaborated again with his wife and scenarist, Natto Wada on the film the following year. It, too, was a great success. The prestigious film journal Kinema Junpo ranked it as the fifth best film of 1962.

Based on renowned Japanese writer Natsume Soseki's same-titled short story collection, Ten Nights Of Dreams brings ten fantastical dream sequences to film with great visual and psychological panache.

Brimful with brooding psychological torment, Kokoro is vintage Kon Ichikawa (An Actor’s Revenge, The Burmese Harp, Tokyo Olympiad). Based on a novel by celebrated Japanese author Natsume Soseki, the director foregrounds its themes of individual isolation and social estrangement, most notably in a central protagonist stricken by existential demons and stranded by changing times.
