Nagisa Oshima

One of Japan’s most famous and at times controversial directors sadly died last week aged 80.

In a career spanning 40 years he is perhaps most famous for  In the Realm of the Senses  which was banned and censored in many countries upon its release and the Palm d’Or nominated Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence starring David Bowie. Read about his life and contribution to cinema from Little White Lies and The Guardian

The BFFS Booking Scheme is home to 3 of his titles: Naked Youth, Night and Fog in Japan and The Sun’s Burial
