A collaboration between BOZAR and CINEMA PARENTHÈSE, this series of four events focuses on pioneering and prominent Japanese filmmakers and artists whose work has rarely, if at all, been shown in Belgium before. The programmes seek to present a wide range of audacious filmic practices with bold formal experimentation married to lyrical styles in works that lie on the margins of visual culture  during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

To situate the historical importance of these works and broaden the understanding of their marginal status while also highlighting interfaces between film history, photography and avant-garde art, the film programmes will be contextualized by Swedish filmmaker, researcher and film programmer Daniel A. Swarthnas.
