July film: "Nobody to Watch Over Me"
(Director: Ryoichi Kimizuka, 2009, 118min. Rating: TBC, Cast: Koichi Sato, Mirai Shiba, Ryuhei Matsuda)

Ryoichi Kimizuka's riveting exploration of the Japanese media's feeding frenzy focuses on a15-year-old girl forced into police protection to escape from the journalistic hordes after her brother is arrested for murder. It plays out like a propulsive edge-of-your-seat thriller that's sure to leave you breathless. This film also earned Kimizuka the ‘Best Screenplay’ award at the Montreal World Film Festival 2008.

Presented by the Consulate-General of Japan, the University of Auckland, the University of Waikato, Massey University and the Japan Foundation.
