Kiju Yoshida is one of the masters of Japanese cinema. As a young film-maker he was part of the new wave of Japanese cinema of the 1960’s. Often compared to European film-makers Antonioni, Godard and Bergman,he is today considered to be a living legend of cinema. France is honouring the Japanese film-maker with a retrospective of his works. Yoshida visited the Institut Lumiere in Lyon, where his most important film Eros Plus Massacre was first exhibited in 1968.
