Part of BAMcinématek

Commonly referred to as “the Japanese Godard,” Nagisa Oshima said he preferred that Jean-Luc Godard be called “the French Oshima.” However one chooses to regard these renegade auteurs, both were leaders of their respective countries’ New Wave movements, creating some of the most stylistically rule-breaking, politically incendiary films of the 1960s and 70s. BAMcinématek screens their explosive works side by side for a double dose of truly revolutionary cinema.
