Obayashi, the director of the 1977 cult classic House, makes a rare appearance for the opening weekend of MoMA’s Art Theater Guild exhibition. His 1982 film Tenkosei is a kind of Japanese Freaky Friday: an astute exploration of gender politics disguised as a tender coming-of-age comedy. A paranormal incident causes an adolescent boy and girl to swap minds and bodies, leading them to discover the blessings and foibles of becoming the opposite sex. In Japanese; English subtitles. 112 min.
