Among the many things we like in this world are: (1) movies because they are entertaining, and (2) Japan because Japan is weird. Those two things come together in our favorite movie event of the year, Eiga Sai, an annual film fest featuring acclaimed Japanese films that give us a glimpse of life in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Eiga Sai, which translates to “movie festival” in Nihongo, will be held this year on the following dates and venues: July 4 to 14 at Cinema 2 of the Shangri-la Plaza Cineplex; July 19 to 28 at the FDCP Cinematheque and Abreeza in Davao; Ayala Center in Cebu from August 7 to 11; and finally, August 19 to 25 at U.P Diliman.

A joint project of the Embassy of Japan, Japan Foundation Manila, and the Film Development Council of the Philippines, this year’s Eiga Sai features films that define what being Japanese means through the lives of everyday people. See a preview of these films below.

And for the seats? The film cycle is free of charge, but seats are on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are released 30 minutes before screening, so if you want to get in, it pays to line up early. For inquiries, you may contact (02) 370-2597 or (02) 370-2598.

About Her Brother

A simple, heartwarming tale about a hardworking older sister named Koharu and estranged younger brother Tetsuro. This is director Yamada Yoji’s tribute to Ichikawa Kon’s film of the same title.

Yes, they exist, and no, they’re not weirdos
We power through all the 'Ghost Fighter' baddies that left a lasting impression
After all, there’s no better time to start good habits than the beginning of a new year
Your division of chores could be a one-way ticket to resentment-ville
