Master class : The world according to Nishimura Yoshihiro
Fonction: CinĂ©ma, thursday 23 february,19h
Master class by Asian cinema specialist Bastian Meiresonne with the presence of Nishimura Yoshihiro, director notably of Tokyo Gore Police and Hell Driver.
Nishi Yoshihiro is, first and foremost, a creator of special effects and outrageous disguises for genre films. He set up his own Nishi Eizo workshop in 2000. Working specially with Sono Sionâ€™s super-cult Suicide Club, he made his own film-making debut in 2008 with Tokyo Gore Police, beating the cinema record in his use of rivers of fake blood. Next was his collaboration with the Sushi Typhoon bandâ€™s label, famous for their low-budget and super-rapid shooting, to produce haemoglobin-rich gore films.
Nishi Yoshihiroâ€™s specialty is his disconcerting inventiveness and his ability to create a deeply personal world at a crossroads between manga, video game and plastic art form.
