Screening program

#3 Kita-ku “Cinema Portrait”
“Cinema Portrait” is a simple work made from ten photographs and around two minutes of audio. It is being created in workshops organized by KINO Meeting, the participants of which are people with overseas backgrounds. Members walk around the city in a team, talking about their own personal episodes, and listening to other people’s stories as the basis for creating a film.
The screening will feature a film to be created in the workshop “KINO Meeting #3 Kita-ku” being held on Friday, May 19 and Saturday, May 20.
See here for workshop details.

Movie “New Tokyo Tour”
Lee loses her job, breaks up with her boyfriend, and is losing sight of the meaning of living in this city. One day Lee has a chance encounter with Toshiki, who is new to Tokyo, and finds herself going on a sightseeing tour with him. The story developed from the roots of project members who made the movie, and from episodes in their daily life. It may not be fiction at all, but the life of someone in the neighborhood you live in.
*This film was developed in the predecessor to KINO Meeting, “Multicultural Film Making: Creating a movie with people who have different roots” (MFM).
*Find out about MFM here.
