  Of Flesh and Blood: The Cinema of Hirokazu Koreeda on Blu-ray [read more]
  Big in Japan
  Following on from a very successful Hirokazu Koreeda season at BFI Southbank during April/May and the UK-wide theatrical release of Maborosi and mini-season at selected cinemas, this new Blu-ray collection brings together four career-defining titles by the Palme d'Or winning director of Shoplifters and now one of world cinema's most celebrated auteurs.

The set features his austerely beautiful debut Maborosi (1995) and lyrical fantasy After Life (1998), alongside Nobody Knows (2004) and Still Walking (2008), films that cemented Koreeda's reputation as an heir to Ozu and a chronicler of the modern Japanese family.

Available on Blu-ray for the very first time in the UK, the four films included in Of Flesh and Blood: The Cinema of Hirokazu Koreeda celebrate the richness, diversity, beauty and humanity of the director's work and are essential viewing for fans of contemporary world cinema.

Special features include a new Q&A with Hirokazu Koreeda, filmed at BFI Southbank in April during the retrospective season and new audio commentaries for all four films by four different Japanese film experts. This Limited Edition collection also includes a 72-page book featuring new writing on the films and in-depth interviews with the director.

4-disc Blu-ray box set released on 22 July 2019 - also available on iTunes and BFI Player. See the trailer at the link.
