The Third Murder, from Japanese maestro Hirokazu Koreeda, will be screened at the Playhouse Cinema in Cannon Street next Monday, June 3.
Well-known attorney Shigemori takes on the defence of murder-robbery suspect Misumi, who was jailed for another murder 30 years ago.
Shigemori’s chances of winning appear slender since his client confesses his guilt – even though he faces the death penalty if convicted.
Exploring ideas of morality, law and justice, and never quite letting on, the film can be viewed as a rebuke to capital punishment in a country where the death penalty still exists.
The screening of Third Murder (subtitled) will start at 7.30pm.
Admission is £5 for LFC members, with standard prices for non-members and concessions.
