Description

“From early sixties, though Japanese, Iimura was well known as one of the first generation of the New York Underground … For many years, Japanese experimental film was Takahiko Iimura.” – Malcolm Le Grice, Time Out, London.

Join us in celebrating avant-garde film and video legend Takahiko Iimura before he returns to Japan after 6 decades as a New York resident and artist. Taka has been a member of the Film-Makers’ Cooperative since its inception and remains one of the most influential experimenters of intermedial cinema. 

“From early sixties, though Japanese, Iimura was well known as one of the first generation of the New York Underground … For many years, Japanese experimental film was Takahiko Iimura.”
