19 November - 5 December 2021: Close-Up on Ryûsuke Hamaguchi

Often compared to Jacques Rivette and Éric Rohmer, Hamaguchi has, in time, developed an increasingly-defined and distinctive style of his own, crafting moving, many-layered, three-dimensional films that deal first-hand with fiction. Curated by Ross McDonnell, this programme is the first UK retrospective of this prolific filmmaker, and a rare opportunity to explore a uniquely-thrilling body of work.
