Conflagration [4K Digitally Restored Version]
Goichi starts working as an apprentice in Shukaku Temple common name in Kyoto in spring of 1944, which he worships. However, the temple becomes no more than a tourist attraction after the World War II. The life style of priests in the temple also changes because of economic wealth. Goichi despairs of it and falls into ruin. One of Kon Ichikawa's masterpieces was restored as a 4K digital remastered version and it will debut in Japan.

Japan and the Japanese
Eight-multi video work by Kon Ichikawa screened at Japan Pavilion at Osaka Expo in 1970. Now, the films have been digitally synthesized to one screen. Miraculous release after 45 years.

Yowamushi Chinsengumi
Long-lost animation film by Kon Ichikawa and others discovered last year in the US. This is the third episode in Hana Yori Dango series. The story of Dangonosuke, a boy samurai rescuing a woman from a villain is told comically.
