From the director of the feel good blockbusters "Waterboys" and "Swing Girls" comes "Happy Flight", the story of a flight crew that has to deal with emergencies, both big and small, on their daily route through the friendly skies. Japan's ANA Airline actually provided a passenger jet and a crew of 500 of their employees to make this film possible.

Pitfall - Hiroshi Teshigahara (1962)

The surreal tale of a labourer and his son who are being pursued by a mysterious white-suited man in an abandoned mining town. After the labourer is murdered by the man the story continues, focusing on his search for the identity of the man in the white suit, as well as the other ghosts who inhabit the town. "Pitfall" marked the first collaboration between Teshigahara and noted novelist Kobo Abe.
