LitFilm: DREAMING MURAKAMI
Brooklyn Public Library
10 Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, NY
LitFilm: A BPL Film Festival About Writers presents a free screening of the documentary, Dreaming Murakami, dir. by Nitesh Anjaan. When Mette Holm begins to translate Haruki Murakami’s debut novel Kaze no uta o kike, a two-meter-tall frog shows up at an underground station in Tokyo. The Frog follows her, determined to engage the translator in its fight against the gigantic Worm, ready to destroy the world with hatred. As Holm struggles to communicate what Murakami’s solitary, daydreaming characters are trying to tell us, the boundary between reality and imagination begins to blur.

The Japanese Aesthetic of Kehai in the Photography of Yukihito Masuura
Foto Care
43 West 22nd Street, New York
This exhibition will focus on Masuura’s exquisite documentation of the cyclical reconstruction and re-consecration of Japan’s most sacred Shinto shrines, Izumo Oyashiro (about every 60 years) and Ise Jingu (nearly 20 years). He is the only photographer to gain access to these revered places. This religious tradition, known as Sengu, dates back more than 1300 years, and not only preserves the artisanal skills required for continuity in Japan’s architectural aesthetics, but also highlights the Japanese aesthetics of wood, paper, textiles and natural light as an artistic symbiosis with nature.
