The Ithaca Fantastic Film Festival Presents:
An outdoor screening of Ishiro Honda’s Gojira
(weather permitting)
starting 9pm

Highly inspired by Ray Harryhausen’s The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, Ishiro Honda’s Gojira (1954) is deeply anchored in Japanese culture and reflects the direct trauma of a post- atomic bomb era. Replacing Harryhausen’s innovative stop motion technique with actual humans in a monster suit, the cheaper production values rocketed Honda, and Gojira, to stardom and remains one of the most profitable Japanese franchises ever.  Also called by the generic name Kaiju, Gojira has a timeless flavour that few films have: a political tale blended with the pure fun of unadulterated mass destruction.
