17 May 2017 10:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Four female talents have been selected to star in the Japan Now section of the Tokyo International Film Festival. The festival is this year celebrating its 30th edition.

Actresses, Sakura Ando, Yu Aoi, Hikari Mitsushima and Aoi Miyazaki, will fly the flag for the home nation. The festival describes the quartet as “the muses of Japanese cinema,” and said that they had been selected for “the powerful sparks they generate on screen, their collaborations with directors, and their increasing international stature.” Previously the section has been dedicated to (male) directors including Masato Harada and Shunji Iwai.

Sakura Ando has appeared in Sion Sono’s “Love Exposure” and Yang Yonghi’s “Our Homeland.” Yu Aoi marked her feature film debut with Shunji Iwai’s “All About Lili Chou Chou,” and won awards with her role in Lee Sang-il’s “Hula Girls.” Hikari Mitsushima gained worldwide attention for her performance in Sion Sono »
