Tokyo Stories at Speed Cinema

May 27 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Exhibition on Screen

Tokyo Stories
Directed by David Bickerstaff


$12 | $8 Speed members

Based on a major exhibition at the Ashmolean in Oxford, Tokyo Stories spans 400 years of incredibly dynamic art – ranging from the delicate woodblock prints of Hokusai and Hiroshige to Pop Art posters, contemporary photography, Manga, film, and brand-new artworks that were created on the streets.

The exhibition was a smash-hit five-star success and brought a younger and more diverse audience to the museum. The film uses the exhibition as a launchpad to travel to Tokyo itself and explore the art and artists of the city more fully.

A beautifully illustrated and richly detailed film, looking at a city that has undergone constant destruction and renewal over its 400-year history, resulting in one of the most vibrant and interesting cities on the planet. 2023, U.K., DCP, in English and Japanese with English subtitles, 90 minutes. Recommended for 12+.
