ECinema: In & Out of Japan

Tuesday, February 18, 2014 ,  7:15PM

EYE Film Institute Netherlands

Admissions: € 10,00

A CFA film, SUPER UP (Kenji Kanesaka, 1966), heads to Amsterdam’s impressive EYE….more from them:

E*Cinema becomes expat cinema as we present experimental films and animations from the 1960s up to the present by Japanese filmmakers who are based abroad. Bring together films from New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Montreal, London and Amsterdam, the programme questions the validity of the concept of a national cinema in the context of those who no longer call their country their home.

Ranging from the poetic to the abrasive, the films resonate with one another along themes of travel and discovery as well as an aesthetic preoccupation with the frame. With films directed by Kenji Kanesaka, Takahiko Iimura, Shinkichi Tajiri, Hiraki Sawa, Tomonari Nishikawa, Daïchi Saïto and one soundtracked by Yoko Ono, the programme will include a bicycle-cinema presentation by Amsterdam’s Pirate Cinema, an expanded cinema performance and an introduction by its curator Julian Ross.

More over on the E*Cinema’s blog.
