Kaneto Shindo + Benicio Del Toro

April 7, 2011

On April 22 (at 6:50 PM) at the BAM, Benicio Del Toro will make a special appearance for a Q&A session for a screening of Kaneto Shindo’s The Naked Island. All proceeds to this will go to the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund so it’s also for a good cause. Tickets are $25. The BAM has great events and I’ll try and post some more events from this venue from time to time.

From the BAM site:
As part of the series The Urge for Survival: Kaneto Shindo, BAMcinématek is pleased to present this special benefit screening featuring a Q&A with Benicio del Toro. Proceeds for this special screening go to earthquake relief in Japan and no senior or member discounts or free admissions apply.

A landmark of Japanese cinema, Shindo’s cinematic tone poem about the life a poor family of farmers on a rocky atoll in Japan’s inland sea was made without a single line of dialogue. “The eloquence with which a movie can be made to convey, without words, the qualities of strength and endurance locked in the lives of human beings is manifest again, with fine simplicity.”—The New York Times
