Zipangu Fest X Close-Up: Nippon Year Zero @ Bethnal Green Working Man's Club

I was the filmmaking volunteer for the first ever edition of the Zipangu Fest and attended every single event.

The Fest opened with a collaboration with Close-Up (film library - - Nippon Year Zero. A programme focused on Japanese 60's  and 70's experimental shorts:



War Games
Dir. Donald Richie, 1962, 22min, 16mm


Sparse and lingering - an interesting study of innocence and the essence of civilization.  




Dead Youth
Dir. Donald Richie, 1967, 13min, 16mm


A study of loss and homosexuality. Mysterious and darkly comic.  




Gewaltopia Trailer
Dir. Motoharu Jonouchi, 1968, 12min, Video


Archive footage re-arranged in different contexts - Jonouchi was known for re-arranging the footage and music for every single screening. 




Shinjuku Station
Dir. Motoharu Jonouchi , 1974, 15min, 16mm


Emotional and impressive. Depiction of Shinjuku Station as a centre of turmoil during the 60's. 



Great Society

Dir. Masanori Oe, 1967, 17min, Video 

Archive footage re-arranged to explore the different points of view of the Japan/U.S.A relationship. Normally, Oe would have 6 projectors going at the same in different combinations and music for every single screening. 


Not only did we have the pleasure of watching some rarely screened shorts - we also got to watch it projected in the film's original print! A sold-out room that was bubbling with anticipation - people had to be turned away.
