    *Filmmaker in Atte ndance

    (Takahiko Iimura, Japan, Japanese w/ Eng st., 89 min\ , 16mm, 1960s-2000s)


    While in Tokyo, Takahiko Iimura read a bout the American underground film movement and he quickly caught the exper imental bug. Since he was unable to actually view the American films, he i nstead based his own films off of everything he read, having to imagine ho w they would look based on small photographs and descriptions. Eventually h e found himself neck and neck with other leading experimental filmmakers. T onight’s program is with a film performance “Film Concert” (1963, scored b y Yasunao Tone) which was performed at MoMA this past January.
