NIFFF XXII Announces World’s First-Ever Katsuhito Ishii Retrospective This Summer

Today marks day one of two this week for those in the know and awaiting the news rollouts regarding the ceremony for director Katsuhito Ishii. With this year’s film festivities at Neuchâtel set to commence in June, the director will be on hand for a debut celebration of Ishii’s work in partnership with UK sales and distro outfit Third Window Films, with a selection of five titles coupled with several shorts to further outline the event. These titles are also just the first (tidal) wave, in a sense, with the full programme to be made public on June 15.
