Moving Images from Japan. A benefit for the Japanese disaster relief.
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 US events will be channeled through Japan Society's Earthquake Relief Fund, and in Europe through Japanisch-Deutsches Zentrum Berlin.
Kinema Nippon is organized by Aily Nash and Nine Yamamoto-Masson.
Aily Nash is a curator and writer. She lives and works in Hudson and Brooklyn, NY.
Nine Eglantine Yamamoto-Masson is a curator, artist, and PhD candidate at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis. She is currently based in Berlin.
