Film Classroom 2019: Japanese female directors - Women who pioneered their way

The appearance of female directors in Japan was in 1936, which was later than in Europe and America. In the 1940s, women began to direct films in such fields as documentary films, and after that, female directors began to produce films, animation films, self-produced films, and pink films. This project introduces the works five times of the women who pioneered as Japanese film directors among the works in the museum collection. At each session, it is explained by a researcher. We look forward to the participation of those who want to learn the basics of movies.
