As Japan became an economic powerhouse and consumerist society in the 1980s, its movies underwent changes as well. While the magnum opus phenomenon of the 1970s became more prevalent, at the same time idol films and animations geared toward young people became major hits. New studios and producers arrived on the scene, ushering in a new wave of talent that transformed the filmmaking world and remains influential to this day. This program, part of a series looking at contemporary Japanese directors, screens 44 Japanese films from the 1980s. Please see the official website for a program and other details.
