Dear Moira,
I saw your email right now. As you are speaking about Kawase-Sento Naomi*, I
wanted to ask you if you know internet sources about her oeuvre that you can
recommend. I don't master the japanese language (or just a tiny bit),
instead I read french, german and english. All sources in these languages
are wellcome.
Thank you for any hints.
Best regards

*The documentary film festival in Nyon will show her films:
