“Yorimichi Caravan” is an art project which produces new films and builds “cross-sectional communities”while carrying out film screening tours.
In the screening tour of Keijiro Nakamori’s documentary film “Bookstore Part 1,” the caravan goes to “community spaces” in various Asian countries together with coordinator Haruka Iharada, and holds screenings and gatherings in each location. In the course of carrying out this main event, short documentaries are produced chronicling the caravan itself and reporting on the “community spaces” where the screenings take place in each country. These documentaries are then presented as new works. When the project returns to Japan, screenings of the completed films, and symposia considering network possibilities and community cross-sectionality with Asian countries, will be held in Yurihama, Tottori–the site of the original film–and Tokyo.
Nakamori starting producing films in 2010. In the same year, he took part in news journalist Daisuke Endo’s video project DROPOUTTVONLINE, producing news content while exploring the themes of poverty and the public nature of the street. He was a cameraman on “Shibuya Brand New Days,” a DROPOUTTVONLINE spinoff film. In 2013, he launched “Label EarthB” and began reporting on the themes of social movements and ways of life in local areas.
