Taka Iimura asked me to pass on information about two upcoming programs in
-- Taka iimura: two screening at Millennium and Anthology Film Archives ------------------------------------ Saturday, March 24, 2007 8pm. at Millennium The filmaker in person. Takahiko Iimura has been a pioneer Japanese artist of experimental film and video since 1960. Residing in both Tokyo and New York, Iimura has had numerous exhibitions in Japan, the US, and Europe. One of his early films, ONAN, was awarded Special Prize at the legendary Brussels Interna- tional Experimental Festival. Recently, he has been working with computers, publishing multimedia CD-ROMs and DVDs of his films, videos, graphics, texts, as well as photographic works. Perhaps the most enigmatic figure in avant-garde cinema/video, TAKAHIKO IIMURA mediates Zen spirituality and technology with playful irony. This program will be composed of a selection of TAKA IIMURA's very earliest work including, EXPERIMENTS IN NEW YORK - NEW YORK SCENES (10 min.-1967), NEW YORK HOT SPRINGS (11 min.-1984), TALKING IN NEW YORK (8 min.-1981), FILMMAKERS (28 min.-196668).
