Join Central Cinema's cinesthesia for Cinephiles as they present Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence by Nagisa Oshima. In 1942 British soldier Jack Celliers comes to a Japanese prison camp, run by Yonoi, who has a firm belief in discipline, honor and glory. In his view, the allied prisoners are cowards when they chose to surrender instead of committing suicide. One of the prisoners, interpreter John Lawrence, tries to explain the Japanese way of thinking, but is considered a traitor. Starring Tom Conti, David Bowie, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Takeshi Kitano, and Jack Thompson.
