As a compliment to the exhibition Daido Moriyama: Stray Dog we are presenting a selection of films by the Japanese directors Susumu Hani, Shohei Imamura, Nagisa Oshima, and Shuji Terayama that, like Moriyama's photographs, reveal a portrait of Japan drawn from the complex and varied reality of postwar Japanese life.
