7-9pm in the microcinema

Suggested: $10

  • Filmmaker Tomonari Nishikawa (Japan/USA) will present a program of his experimental Super 8 and 16mm films at the VSW Salon, and discuss his process-based approach to visual and temporal composition. Nishikawa’s intricate cinematic technique weaves time and space into graphic patterns, undulating rhythms and colorful forms, resulting in an expansive perceptual experience of often familiar subjects.
