Jasper Sharp on Today's Show

Today I will be joined by writer and film curator Jasper Sharp to discuss his forthcoming book Historical Dictionary of Japanese Cinema and Zipangu Film Festival.

An expert on Japanese cinema, Jasper has written several books and is co-editor of the website Midnight Eye.
Jasper is now the director and head programmer of Zipangu Fest, the premiere festival in the UK showcasing Japanese films, and the co-director and co-programmer (with Chris Magee) of the Shinsedai New Generation Japanese Film Festival in Toronto.
He's also a bit of a foodie with a love of fungi and making his own berry wines. I will be bringing some ghostly bento to the studio for us to sample in this week's Dim Sum Lunch Box.
