Kim Longinotto and Jano Williams / UK / 1993 / 50 min
9 December 2016. 12-2PM Room 309, Watts Building, University of Brighton, Lewes Road, BN2 4GJ

Organised by Film Festival Ambassadors Patricia Prieto Blanco and Paul Gilbert

This award-winning film opens a door into the amazing world of the Takarazuka Revue, the all-female theatre troupe in Japan. Thousands of young women aspire to perform in the Revue’s glitzy musical spectaculars and the millions of women who attend the shows idolise the romantic heroes like heart throb pop starts. Dream Girls offers a compelling insight into gender and sexual identity and the contradictions experienced by Japanese women today.

Part of the Film Festival Ambassador series.  Thanks to our dedicated RAI Film Festival Ambassadors, a selection of films from the RAI Film Festival Archive will be screening in universities and community venues across the UK between November 2016 and March 2017.
