JAPANESE FILMS -- WEDNESDAYS OCTOBER 5 & 12
The Consulate-General of Japan in Atlanta presents two music themed Japanese films:
HAVE A SONG ON YOUR LIPS [ 2015, 132min, Dir: Miki Takahiro ] Film adaptation of the novel by Nakata Eiichi. Kashiwagi Yuri (Aragaki Yui), a pianist from Tokyo, is a substitute teacher on assignment as advisor to a middle school chorus. The brashly dedicated chorus head Nazuna (Tsunematsu Yuri) and withdrawn Satoru (Shimoda Shota) each have their own unspeakable secret. On the day of the long-anticipated national competition, an incident occurs, and a true miracle transpires when everyone's emotions become a single "song." Japanese with English subtitles.
A BAND RABBIT AND A BOY [ 2013, 97min, Dir: Suzuki Takuji ] A musical drama adapted from Nakazawa Kei's eponymous novel, presenting a heartfelt depiction of junior high school students devoted to brass band music. Children were cast from Hamamatsu in Shizuoka Prefecture, the story's setting. Katsuhisa (Kawasaki Kosei), a shy first year junior high school student who makes an easy target for bullies, is troubled by his school's policy of making extracurricular club activities compulsory. However, a strange rabbit (Yamada Maho) leads him to join the brass band, which has the longest practice sessions of all the other school clubs. Japanese with English subtitles.

NOSFERATU w/ LIVE SCORE by THE INVINCIBLE CZARS -- THURSDAY OCTOBER 6
Austin’s most adventurous band, THE INVINCIBLE CZARS, brings a live performance of their new tastefully modern score for the classic German silent film NOSFERATU (1922) to Athens!
Using a mix of acoustic and electric instruments along with wind player Leila Henley’s otherworldly vocals, the band borrows from Bela Bartok’s classic Romanian Folk Dances for their original score backing a new digital restoration of one of the most revered horror films in the silent era of cinema.
An unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, NOSFERATU is the quintessential vampire film, crafted by legendary German director F. W. Murnau (Sunrise, Faust, The Last Laugh). Rather than depicting Dracula as a shape-shifting monster or debonair gentleman, Murnau's Count Orlok, portrayed by Max Schreck, is a nightmarish, spidery creature of bulbous head and taloned claws -- perhaps the most genuinely disturbing incarnation of vampirism yet envisioned.
NOSFERATU was an atypical expressionist film in that much of its landscapes, villages and castles were actual locations in the Carpathian mountains, infusing the story with the subtle tones of nature: both pure and fresh as well as twisted and sinister, in this cornerstone of the horror genre that remains to many viewers the most unsettling vampire film ever made.
The Dance Party to end all Dance Parties. Put on your best blood-soaked 70's prom outfits and boogie the night away to the tunes of DJ Immuzikation. Carrie may have destroyed the gymnasium and murdered all the revelers but that just means there's more room on the dance floor! King and Queen awards, Specialty cocktails and Carrie style photo booth. It'll be a night to dismember!
