Proud & The Nomad bring the tastes and energy of Japan to London with new Pop-up Japan! Whether you want to connect with traditional culture, sample new, fresh flavours or experience a neon-lit night to remember, Proud has a corner of vibrant Japan to enthral every visitor. Embrace the contemporary sounds, tastes and vibrant street-life of Japan this March and venture down the blossom-lined paths of Regent’s Canal to Proud East. With hands-on workshops, eclectic cinema and the delicate tastes of Japanese fine cuisine, Proud’s pop-up fuses Tokyo’s dynamic cultural hub with century old customs.
Ever- controversial cult director Takashi Miike creates this unnerving horror film about a widowed TV producer auditioning prospective wives. In his search, one candidate particularly stands out, a lovely ex-ballerina dressed in white. The widower cannot believe his good fortune, until he starts looking more closely at his potential bride-to-be: her autobiographical details don’t quite check out, she has a number of ugly scars on her legs, and he learns that people in her life have a habit of disappearing. When he discovers a man trussed up in her living room with his tongue and feet lopped off, he concludes that she is perhaps not the woman of his dreams.
Please note: £10 ticket includes screening only & film will be silent with Wi-Fi headphones provided.
