This workshop on March 4, 2017 at Harvard Film Archive addresses the immense shifts taking place in the way moving images from Japan are preserved and presented. It explores the consequences they have for film as an art and as an object of research.
Collaborative Cataloging Japan (CCJ) is pleased to collaborate with Vox Populi Gallery to present an artist talk by Japanese artist Shuzo Azuchi Gulliver. As part of CCJ’s Japanese Expanded Cinema research thread, recently launched with grant support from the Andy Warhol Foundation, Shuzo Azuchi Gulliver will introduce to an audience in Philadelphia, his conceptual and performative film explorations of the late-1960s.
As the first step in Collaborative Cataloging Japan’s engagement and research with Japanese expanded cinema, CCJ is pleased to invite filmmaker Masanori Oe and curator Go Hirasawa from Japan to present Mr. Oe’s films in the 1960s to audiences in Philadelphia. Incorporating experiments with the materiality of film and using multiple projections, Mr. Oe’s newsreel documentary works reveal the artistic and political directions and conditions under which artists and filmmakers made their work.
Organized in collaboration with Collaborative Cataloging Japan (CCJ)’s partner researcher, Go Hirasawa (Meiji Gakuin University), this screening event underscores recent preservation and digitization efforts by international institutions and individuals. This screening will feature a new digital transfer of Masao Adachi’s Female Student Guerrilla; curator and scholar Go Hirasawa will introduce the program.
