*Filmmaker in Atten dance
(Takahiko Iimura, Japan, Japanese w/ Eng st., 89 min, 16mm, 1960s-2000s)
While in Tokyo, Takahiko Iimura read abou t the American underground film movement and he quickly caught the experimen tal bug. Since he was unable to actually view the American films, he instea d based his own films off of everything he read, having to imagine how they would look based on small photographs and descriptions. Eventually he found himself neck and neck with other leading experimental filmmakers. Tonight’s program is with a film performance “Film Concert” (1963, scored by Yasunao Tone) which was performed at MoMA this past January.
