Eastern Memories – G. J. Ramstedt’s World (2018)
Eastern Memories is an epic road movie into the Far East of Mongolia and Japan. It seamlessly intertwines the past and the present into a visually stunning journey of adventure and exploration, love and death, conspiracies and the fall of nations – all told by a dead Finn from the distant north.
Drive is a 2011 American action drama film directed by the Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn, starring Ryan Gosling as the lead character. Defined entirely by his profession, by day, the nameless phlegmatic driver is a mechanic and a daredevil stuntman for high-paced action movies, but by night, he’s a masterful getaway wheelman for criminals.
Prinsessa Kaguyan taru (2013)
Legendary Studio Ghibli cofounder Isao Takahata revisits Japan’s most famous folktale in this gorgeous, hand-drawn masterwork, decades in the making. Found inside a shining stalk of bamboo by an old bamboo cutter and his wife, a tiny girl grows rapidly into an exquisite young lady.
