Film Screening – Linda Linda Linda
Don’t let the lack of punctuation fool you. “Linda Linda Linda” is a peachy two-hour delight that ends with a flurry of exclamation points. If the Beatles were teen girls starring in a John Hughes picture made with a distinctly Japanese attention to the comedy of everyday life, the movie showcasing it all would go something like this
– Wesley Morris, The Boston Globe
…Only three days before their high school festival, guitarist Kei, drummer Kyoko, and bassist Nozomi are forced to recruit a new lead vocalist for their band. They choose Korean exchange student Son, though her comprehension of Japanese is a bit rough! It’s a race against time as the group struggles to learn three tunes for the festival’s rock concert.
Join the FSS Film Society for a rare screening of Japanese high-school punk rock gem Linda Linda Linda (2005) directed by Nobuhiro Yamashita and featuring music by Shiori Sekine (Base Ball Bear), the Blue Hearts and instrumental tracks by James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins).
We are looking for Film and Screen Studies people to nominate movies for the screening series to run in 2017.
