Japanese Film Festival Classics presents a selection of films that unveil age-old ghost stories and chilling tales from the spirit realm. Grief and Vengeance: Otherworldly Tales features a line-up of films from master filmmaker Nobuo Nakagawa, who pioneered the Japanese horror film genre. Beyond the suspense-filled, psychological horrors of this selection of films is a glimpse into traditional Japanese folklore and the spirit world spanning many eras.

This free classics program is a satellite event of the annual Japanese Film Festival. Presented by the Japan Foundation, Sydney and made possible through the support of the Japan Foundation Film Library.
