Dirs. Neil Cantwell, Tim Grabham / UK, Japan / 2011 / 1hr 27mins / subtitled
A meditative journey taking in sounds and sights with three Japanese
musicians: Akinobu Tatsumi, a young Buddhist priest and custodian of a
temple outside of Kumamoto City who moonlights as a hip-hop DJ; Eri Fujii, who has devoted her life to the mastery of the sho, a rare and ancient Chinese bamboo wind instrument; and Akihiro Iitomi, a master of Noh theatre, a kotsuzumi drum player and self confessed jazz fiend. The filmmakers will be present at the screening.
