No Japanese horror (J-horror) or ghost film is complete without its haunting woman specter, dating back from as early as the time of Akira Kurosawa to as recent as the latest Sadako film of the Ringu (The Ring) franchise. Join us and find out why the monstrous feminine has dominated J-horror cinema, and why some of the most iconic women figures of the genre are the way they are. This panel is presented by Dr. Jennifer Yoo, B.A. in East Asian Studies and Ph.D in Asian Theatre.
