Zero Focus

  • Feb 5, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • ICA

Something slightly different with a meet to see the Hitchcock-style Japanese thriller Zero no shoten (Zero Focus) at the ICA. It looks like a bit of a post second world war, female-led murder mystery about a woman seeking to find out what happened to her missing husband, and is a remake of a 60s film.

It's on at 6.10 on Tuesday 5th so a bit of a different day as well; we'll be meeting in the ICA's bar area from 5.30. For those of you who haven't been there before, the ICA is an indie cinema in the slightly odd location of the Mall, leading up to Buckingham Palace. It has a nice bar so we'll probably stay there for a drink afterwards. Probably a bit of a neiche audience for this one, but the ICA have a good record of choosing quality Asian films that nobody's ever heard of! This one has a Q&A afterwards, though the ICA website doesn't specify who with. I'm not sure how likely it'll sell out as ICA's screens are quite small, so here's the booking link.

Hope to see you there!
(Unlike the trailer below, the film will be subtitled)

    Hi was really glad to have found out about this film and enjoyed the Hitchcock styling but sorry I missed everyone!

    I thought the film was great. One of the things I liked was that the plot seemed plausible. I have a hard time suspending my disbelief with a lot of thrillers. It was interesting that other people didn't find this.

    I like the venue, its little bookshop, the bar and all. But the best thing was meeting you guys! As I said there, I didn't like the film, but I still had a nice time over there.

      Hi Amelia

      In the bar area; probably the upstairs seating, though we'll go downstairs if not. Just about to mail my number out!

    This is one of ten excellent Japanese films being shown at the ICA starting on Feb 1, to celebrate 10 years of the Japan Foundation Touring Films Programme. All by contemporary film makers, covering a variety of genre, these films take an illuminating look back at Japan since the mid-90s. Well worth checking out the whole programme. The ICA's cinema - as Gabriel has pointed out - is quite small, so early booking is a good idea.
