Kinema Nippon is a series of fund-raising screenings that present curated programs of experimental films, video art, and Japanese classics, held in several international cities in collaboration with local film and art institu- tions. By presenting film and video work to ce- lebrate the visionary cinema of Japan, Kinema Nippon mobilizes the moving image as a cata- lyst for cultural awareness and unity during this crucial time.
All proceeds from the screenings will go to disaster relief efforts in cooperation with the Japan Society New York and JDZB (Japa- nisch-Deutsches Zentrum Berlin).
