Naomi Kawase, Guest of Honor at the second edition of the MAPFRE FOUNDATION's 4+1 Festival

 

Japanese film director Naomi Kawase, who competed for a Palme d'Or at the last edition of the Cannes Film Festival with her film Hanezu no Tsuki (2011), will be the Guest of Honor at the second edition of MAPFRE FOUNDATION's 4+1 Film Festival. This competition, which is held simultaneously in Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro from October 26th through October 30th 2011, will honor this filmmaker's prolific career by screening the key titles in her filmography in all five cities. Kawase will also be present in Mexico City, the festival's headquarters during this second edition.

 

Kawase was born in 1969 in Nara (Japan); she studied at the Osaka School of Photography, which is now known as the School of Visual Arts. In 1997, she became the youngest director to have received a Caméra d'Or at the Cannes Festival for her film Suzaku. In 2007 she also won the Festival's Gran Prix for The Mourning Forest. Her films have also won awards at other competitions such Visions du Réel, Rotterdam and Locarno.

 

The Japanese filmmaker has an extensive filmography of over thirty works including short films and features, fiction and documentary, Super-8 and 35mm, short intimate pieces about her family as well as more industrial projects shot with a traditional film crew. Her filmography should not just be seen as a work-in-progress but also as a life-in-progress, because it allows viewers to gradually discover the filmmaker's quests, doubts and intuitions from the time she was still practically a teenager up to her more mature years.

 

Naomi's entire work is a sort of rough inventory of the filmmaker, because all her images - whether or not they are documentary- embrace her memories, both of film and of life. This inventory has no superfluous images, though some may be tentative, crass or innocent. MAPFRE FOUNDATION's 4+1 Film Festival will screen four films by this Japanese director in its Special Selection: Hotaru 2009, Genpin (2010), Shara (2003) and Hanezu no Tsuki. In addition, Kawase will offer a master class in Mexico City. Finally, Cineteca Nacional's Galería Sala 8 will also screen a selection of her first short films.
