Co-organized by the Japan Foundation and Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens Talk by Eileen B. Mikals-Adachi
Wednesday, December 9, 2020
Location: Virtual Lecture
Japan has produced one of the world’s most fascinating national cinemas, and the Japanese view of the natural world permeates film. Images are used to project the Japanese perception of nature, be it subtly or overtly, and the resulting cinematic collages offer a fascinating look at the relationship between the people and their surroundings. This talk will consider how film acts as a vehicle for cultural representations of nature and what might be distinctive about Japanese films.
