CELEBRATING TAKAHIKO IIMURA

“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.

Still from OBSERVER/OBSERVED (1999).

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.
