My name is Wendy Cohen and I am writing from Women Make Movies, a non-profit organization in New York. I am doing research on various Asian Studies/Japanese Culture organizations and I came across this listserv. I think that members of KINEJAPAN would be interested in a documentary entitled THE FOURTH DIMENSION. We have had an incredible response from educators and community organizations using this documentary to generate dialogue on Japanese culture. I am posting this announcement on your listserv as we hope to reach those individuals who can best benefit from this film. Please let me know if you have any additional outreach suggestions!                                                                                                                                           Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you! 
All the best,

Wendy Cohen                                                                                                                                                                 Women Make Movies


Women Make Movies is proud to announce that Trinh T. Minh-ha's critically acclaimed film THE FOURTH DIMENSION is now available to educators. As one of this year's most requested educational resources from WMM, THE FOURTH DIMENSION is essential viewing for generating dialogue on Japanese culture.  Here at WMM, we have witnessed firsthand the power of independent media to provoke discussion and increase awareness on important issues.  We would like to support these efforts by offering a special 25% discount to university libraries, educators and community organizations using independent media as a teaching tool for social change.


Acclaimed filmmaker Trinh T. Minh-ha (Reassemblange, A Tale of Love) ventures into the digital realm with her stunning new feature THE FOURTH DIMENSION, an incisive and insightful examination of Japan through its art, culture, and social rituals.  As is the case with Minh-ha's previous films, her new digital video is a multi-layered work addressing issues around its central theme: the experience of time, the impossibility of truly seeing, and the impact of video on image-making.
