Japan Film Night       


KURONEKO (Black Cat)

In war-torn medieval Japan, a demon haunts the Rajomon Gate. The governor sends a fearless war hero (Kichiemon Nakamura) to confront the spirit, but what the man finds are two beautiful women (Nobuko Otowa, Kiwako Taichi) who look just like his lost mother and wife.


Donations will be accepted for the Save the Children Japan Earthquake Emergency Fund


"A ghost story that's more eerie than unnerving, and often hauntingly lovely."

--Manohla Dargis, New York Times


"Kaneto Shind´┐Ż's Kuroneko may take the cake."

--Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
