Presented as a cinematic complement to the Art Institute of Chicago’s contemporaneous exhibition, Provoke: Photography in Japan between Protest and Performance, 1960–1975, these three screenings provide an opportunity to explore the historical intersection of experimental filmmaking with documentary cinema traditions in a period of radical social and political change. Scholar and curator Hirasawa Gō, and director Masanori Oe, will be present for a discussion moderated by Professor Patrick Noonan.
