Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence screening at MoMA

July 21, 2017

Mamoru Oshii's Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence will be screening at the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) as part of a special program entitled "Future Imperfect: The Uncanny in Science Fiction", to be held at MoMA, New York from July 17 through August 31, 2017.

The exhibition includes more than 40 science-fiction films from all over the world by directors such as Kathryn Bigelow, Jean-Luc Godard, David Cronenberg, Michael Snow, Alexander Sokurov, and Steven Spielberg. According to the MoMA, these filmmakers "have explored ideas of memory and consciousness; thought, sensation, and desire; self and other; nature and nurture; time and space; and love and death. Their films, lying at the nexus of art, philosophy, and science, occupy a twilight zone bounded only by the imagination, where "humanness" remains an enchanting enigma."

Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence is the only animated feature film from Japan included in the program.

The Museum of Modern Art was founded in 1929 and today is one of the world's largest museums devoted to modern and contemporary art. Central to The Museum of Modern Art's mission is the encouragement of an ever-deeper understanding and enjoyment of modern and contemporary art by the diverse local, national, and international audiences that it serves.

An ideal sequel to the groundbreaking 1995 classic, and a visionary apotheosis of sound an visual magniloquence, Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence became the first ever (and as of today, the only) Japanese animated feature film to be nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. It was awarded Best Asian Film at Sitges in the same year.

Date: August 18, 2017 (Fri)
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: T2, Theater 2

Date: August 19, 2017 (Sat)

Keiichi Hara in focus at the Tokyo International Film Festival 2017

June 23, 2017

The Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) announced The World of Keiichi Hara, a special showcase dedicated to the work of award-winning director Keiichi Hara in this year's Animation Focus section of the festival. TIFF 2017 will be held in Tokyo from October 25 through November 3.

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Japanese animation, as well as TIFF's first 30 years. To celebrate both milestones, TIFF has decided to pay homage to Keiichi Hara for his outstanding achievments in filmmaking, and whose increasing international acclaim has confirmed his prominent role in both current and future anime culture.

Animation Focus highlights innovative directors who have contributed to the phenomenal success of the industry. Previous editions have been dedicated to Hideaki Anno and Mamoru Hosoda. The World of Keiichi Hara will be the first-ever major retrospective of Hara's work, encompassing his career through TV productions, feature films and commercial films. Screening will be followed by panel sessions with special guests. More details will be announced at the TIFF line-up press conference slated for late September.

Born in 1959, Hara worked extensively on popular family TV shows, such as Doraemon and especially Crayon Shin-chan, that he directed from 1996 to 2004. He also scripted ten Crayon Shin-chan movies, directing six. Hara then shifted to independent filmmaking, pursuing more personal projects. International recognition came with Japan Academy Prize-winning Summer Days with Coo (2007) and especially with Colorful (2010), greeted with the Jury's Special Distinction and the Audience Award at Annecy 2011. Hara admires classic Japanese filmmakers such as Yasujiro Ozu and Keisuke Kinoshita. To the latter, he dedicated his first live-action movie in 2013, Dawn of a Filmmaker: The Keisuke Kinoshita Story. His latest animated film, Miss Hokusai (2015) won prestigious international awards at Annecy, Fantasia, Sitges and the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, and was described by French newspaper Le Monde as "a lesson of elegance".

Established in 1985, the Tokyo International Film Festival is the only Japanese film festival accredited by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations (FIAPF). One of Asia premiere film festivals, TIFF seeks out excellent films from around the world and brings them to Tokyo, where filmmakers and film fans can enjoy them, meet young filmmakers, and be inspired.

The exhibition focusses on the last 30 years of Hokusai's life - a time when he produced some of his most memorable masterpieces. Items will include prints, paintings and illustrated books, many of which are on loan from 32 different collections scattered across Japan, Europe and the USA. Many of the works are in the UK for the first time.

Established in 1753, the British Museum is the first national public museum in the world, and one of the largest, visited by nearly 6 million people every year. Its collection of Japanese ukiyo-e is said to be around 70,000 items.

June 17, 2016

Keiichi Hara's latest film Miss Hokusai is being featured at the "Hokusai x Manga" exhibition, currently held at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (MKG) of Hamburg, Germany. The exhibition, held from June 10 through September 11, aims to establish a link between Edo period popular culture, such as ukiyo-e depicting actors, warriors and courtesans, and present-day Tokyo pop culture, made of manga, anime and idols, both so hugely influential on the West. The corner dedicated to Miss Hokusai features production material never shown to the public before.

With approximately 500,000 objects from 4,000 years of human history the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg is one of the most influential museums for arts and crafts in Europe. Opened in 1877, the MKG tells the remarkable story of human creativity. The top-class collections range from Ancient art to Contemporary art and include the European, Islamic and East Asian cultural regions.

O-Ei's Masterwork Exhibiting in Tokyo

April 20, 2015

One of the great mysteries about O-Ei, third of Hokusai's four daughters and the main character in Keiichi Hara film Miss Hokusai, is that despite accounts of the time all agree without exception on her extraordinary talent, the number of works ascribed to her is surprisingly limited. Only ten works have been confirmed as of today, of which two are without her signature, and only two, which are illustrations for manuals, are inscribed with a date. To this frustratingly meagre corpus, three more works signed as Hokusai's daughter Tatsu-jo (or Toki-jo) could be added, previous acceptance of the theory according which Tatsu-jo was an early art name O-Ei used before her short-lived marriage with Minamizawa Tomei. Furthermore, O-Ei's ten works are scattered in as many museums across three continents, making a comprehensive appreciation of her art an utterly challenging task, also considering that no museum maintains a permanent exhibition of ukiyo-e due to their fatal sensitiveness to light. It is therefore most welcomed news that the Ota Memorial Museum of Art in Harajuku, Tokyo, has decided to hold a special exhibition of O-Ei's most representative paintings, Courtesans Showing Themselves to the Strollers through the Grille in conjunction with the release of Miss Hokusai. It is a rare and unmissable opportunity because the painting is usually exhibited only once every four years.

Courtesans Showing Themselves to the Strollers through the Grille will be exhibiting from May 1 to May 28, 2015 at the Ota Memorial Museum in Tokyo.

Official website:
http://www.ukiyoe-ota-muse.jp/index-E.html


"Courtesans Showing Themselves to the Strollers through the Grille". O-Ei signed this painting as Oi, hiding each Chinese character in her name in the lanterns carried by the strollers (Ota Memorial Museum of Art).
