‘Key of Life’

The Japan Foundation, Manila and the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines are offering free Japanese film screenings at Trinoma Mall from September 7 to 10. This event coincides with the 2nd Asean–Japan TV Festival 2017 (AJTVF2) to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Asean.

Audiences can enjoy five new Japanese films: “The Projects” (“Danch”i), “The Mohican Comes Home” (“Mohican Kokyo ni Kaeru”), “Key of Life” (“Kagidorobo no Method”), and “LA LA LA at Rock Bottom” (“Misono Universe”). The line-up also includes “Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2016: Reflections” which was screened in the Tokyo International Film Festival. To create the omnibus film Reflections, The Japan Foundation Asia Center joined three directors from the Philippines, Cambodia, and Japan: Brillante Ma Mendoza, Sotho Kulikar and Isao Yukisada.
