From the Japan Society website :

This year, the Globus Film Series offers a retrospective of rarely shown films produced from the late 1950s to the early 1960s by mercurial, pioneering Japanese film studio Shintoho. Founded in 1947 by employees of the Tokyo-based Toho Company during strike action (its name means "New Toho"), Shintoho promptly established itself as one of the major studios of the second golden age of Japanese cinema, specializing in low- (or no-) budget productions that have become absolute cult classics. Shintoho produced over 500 features during a 14-year period, spanning a wide variety of genres from crime-thriller series to the youth films and exploitation films known as ero-guro (erotic grotesque). This retrospective, curated by film critic Mark Schilling for the 2010 Udine Far East Film Festival, provides highlights of Shintoho's delightfully deranged output, from hard-hitting gangster movies to campy horror chillers and supernatural tales of mystery. All films are in Japanese with English subtitles. All shows are New York Premieres. Film descriptions by Mark Schilling.

Tickets to each screening: $12/$9 Japan Society members, seniors & students
