Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Force Takashi Miike to Cancel US Appearance
Dread Central recently showcased The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s upcoming program Shinjuku Outlaw: 13 Films By Takashi Miike here. The visionary director was slated to make a rare US appearance at the festival to introduce a few of his films as well as conduct a Q&A.
Sadly, due to the recent events in Japan, Miike has had to decline traveling and will be unable to attend the screenings. However, the program will go on as scheduled and remains a rare chance for people to see some of Miike’s impressive work on the big screen.
