Does anyone know whether Kawase's new film "Mogari no Mori" has a U.S.
distributor yet?
Is a print or DVD of the film available in the U.S. for public screenings?
If so, where can one get it?

Dear KineJapan-ers,

With belated introduction to follow, I thought I'd follow up on this
earlier message to let those who don't already know that Kawase will be in
Kansai again on July 1st, this time at Osaka's Planet Plus One Cinema.  In
addition to the director's talk she'll give that day, Planet Plus One will
be doing a really large showcase of Kawase's work, planned already before
the run at Cannes (information in Japanese at
http://www.planetplusone.com/special/post_2.php).  Note that at least the
print of Kaleidoscope (1999) will be shown with English subs.

For any who missed A Page of Madness in Tokyo a few months ago, there will
also be another opportunity to see it when the Museum of Kyoto (Kyoto
Bunka Hakubutsukan) screens it June 28th and 30th

With respect to my introduction, I am a graduate student in Comparative
Literature at the University of California in Irvine focusing on body
genre cinema, feminist theory and Japanese cultural production (especially
postwar cinema).  Currently at work on my master's project, I am looking
at Takashi Miike's Imprint, considering the critical work of
representations of (extreme) violence and the ethics of reading (esp.
"Japaneseness").  At the moment I'm at Kobe University for one semester
doing research involving obscenity law (related tangentially to the Miike
project through a question of bodies, bounds, and censorship).
