Typhoon Nanmadol batters the country and cripples travel throughout the region and wider country by rail and by air. Meanwhile, the National Film Archive of Japan celebrates 90 years of Toho Studios with the second part of a two-part season of films dedicated to the studio. From Sotoji Kimura's “Ongaku kigeki: horoyoi Jinsei” (1933) to Shiro Moritani's “Aka zu-kin chan, kiwotsukete” or Take Care Little Red Riding Hood (1970) suggests how the Toho Studio might of responded in later years to the changing cultural landscape, picturing the country’s mood, its sentiment, climate, even weather, expressing a cultural, generational and environmental change.
