To celebrate Chaplin’s debut in film 100 years ago, some of his early comedies will be screened with popular voice actor narration (benshi) at Asakusa Public Hall in Tokyo.

The shows will take place at 6:30 pm on September 12th and 13th, 2014.

Japan’s top voice actors, including Hazama Michio, Nozawa Masako and Yamadera Koichi, will perform, along with Kawashima Anna who was featured in “Uzumasa Limelight” (a Japanese film made in homage to Charles Chaplin’s Limelight).

As a special guest, Charly Sistovaris, Chaplin’s grandson, will talk with Japanese Chaplin specialist, Ono Hiroyuki.
