Coup de coeur: Shohei Imamura


We fell in love with the director’s work after watching Karayuki-San, The Making of a Prostitute¬†at Sheffield Docfest. Imamura tells the story of 74 year old Kikuyo Zendo, painting a humane and dignifying portrait of an ex-prostitute. His fiction films are also a must-see, post-war Japanese filmmaking at its best.
