This event takes a look at what’s behind the Bakuon Film Festival, where the audience enjoys movies at loud volume and set in a movie theatre with large-scale and high-quality sound equipment meant for live concerts.
This event is hosted by the Bakuon Film Festival and welcomes the film critic Yasuhito Higuchi as your guide as you watch and compare the screening of movies in a normal setting and then in the Bakuon loud volume setting.
The feature film, Parks, is a youth film about music that has enjoyed public interest through the casting of many young and popular actors, such as Ai Hashimoto and Mei Nagano, as well as many musicians, like Shugo Tokumaru. This film, with its focus on sound, will invite audience members to a world of depth that only it can provide.
A portion of the film ‘Parks’ (10-15 minute clip) will be screened at normal settings for a regular movie theatre (Studio C) and at Bakuon loud volume settings (Studio A), thereby deepening the understanding of the audience towards mechanisms and features of the Bakuon screening style.
Showing of the film ‘Parks’ at the YCAM Bakuon Film Festival 2018.
