Venue: Birkbeck 43 Gordon Square

Friday 9 September 2022, Birkbeck Cinema, 10am-5pm

A study-day dedicated to the work of TSUCHIMOTO Noriaki will take place in collaboration with Birkbeck University. Tsuchimoto developed a unique practice of working with people and the environment, honed over time and with a strong ethical positioning that has implications to the way we think about the social responsibility and commitment of the filmmaker. We will discuss different aspects of Tsuchimoto’s work, highlighting lesser-known aspects of his work such as the films he made for television, or the emergence of an eco-critical thinking and practice in his films that he developed in different and creative ways in his long career. The objective is to place Tsuchimoto's work at the crux of current concerns by inviting scholars in Japan and abroad to respond to his films and their wider implications.
