Shinonome Omogo Ishizuchi (Shiho Kano, 2008)A spectrum of experimental moving image works from Japan, ranging from late 60s to contemporary works, are presented in Kinema Nippon’s two-part program. Although varying greatly in their formal and aesthetic concerns, the works all rigorously reexamine the everyday through their respective experiments and innovations in their medium. Kinema Nippon is a series of fund-raising screenings that present curated programs of experimental films, video art and Japanese classics, held in several international cities in collaboration with local film and art institutions. By presenting film and video work to celebrate the visionary cinema of Japan, Kinema Nippon mobilizes the moving image as a catalyst for cultural awareness and unity during this crucial time. All proceeds from the screening will go to disaster relief efforts.

Works by Takahiko Iimura, Takashi Makino, Yoi Suzuki, Stom Sogo, Daisuke Nose, Tomonari Nishikawa, Eriko Sonoda, Toshio Matsumoto, Shiho Kano, and Shinkan Tamaki. $5
