As part of its year-round screening series, Doha Film Institute (DFI) presents a showcase of acclaimed works from the rich and diverse cinematic tradition of Japan. The showcase is part of the Qatar Japan 2012 initiative, marking the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The series will feature classic and modern films, celebrating some of the masters, stars, genres and studios that have made Japan a leader in world cinema. Screenings will take place over the last weekend of every month at the Museum of Islamic Art auditorium from March to September.
The film selection for August is 'Always - Sunset on Third Street'
Set in 1958 as Japan emerges from the shadow of war, ‘Always – Sunset on Third Street’ follows the lives of a group of people in a small Tokyo neighbourhood on the cusp of major change. Winner of 12 Awards at the 2006 Japanese Academy Awards, ‘Always – Sunset on Third Street’ is a nostalgic, sincere and funny exploration of a bygone era and a neighbourhood filled with optimism for a better future.
A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will go to the ROTA Tsunami Relief Fund.
