CANCELLED EVENT: Views of Japan
Friday, December 01, 2017 7:00 pm
Event hosted by: SVA's Filmmakers Dialogue
***AS OF 11/22, THE VIEWS OF JAPAN EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.***
Please join us for a discussion and presentation withÂ Gloria KatzÂ andÂ Willard Huyck, two renowned filmmakers (American Graffiti, Indiana Jones and the TempleÂ ofÂ Doom, French Postcards) who began collecting Japanese photography more than a decade ago, and whose ongoing hunt seems indeed like a Hollywood movie. A memoir about their loveÂ ofÂ Japanese photography and their experiences collecting it,Â ViewsÂ ofÂ JapanÂ makes available a selection ofÂ rare masterpieces from their extensive collection, along with a personal â€œscriptâ€ recounting how they scouted, debated, selected and ultimately acquired manyÂ ofÂ the works. This was no small undertaking considering the rarityÂ of someÂ ofÂ the images, particularly those taken before the 1970s. The result is a distinctly personal presentationÂ ofÂ oneÂ ofÂ the great private collectionsÂ ofÂ Japanese photography in the world.
Reception and book signing to follow.
