Lolita in Full Bloom: 1980s Irresistible Heroines
November 10*-19, 2006
New York, NY
Delving into a world where teenage girls command yakuza gangs, travel through time and get trapped in boys' bodies, Lolita in Full Bloom:1980s Irresistible Heroines features five trailblazing films from the 1980s starring female pop stars known in Japan as "idols." Rarely seen in the States, these films are revived for two weeks with new English subtitles, created by the Japan Society especially for this series.
Check out the link to the trailer for 1981's Sailor Suit and Machine Gun (セーラー服と機関銃) and the coverage of the lollipop party for the opening film at Outcast Cinema!
