Dear Kinejapan list members
As a part of the international workshop "Interrogating Okinawa: Memories,
Meanings and Images", the National Institute of Japanese Studies and the
University of Sheffield are hosting an exciting event of film screening and
public lectures on March 6 in Showroom Cinema in Sheffield. The film to be
shown is Takamine Go's Untamatgiru (1989) and Takamine will be present there
for Q and A. We are also very lucky to have Aaron as a speaker for this
event. After Aaron's talk, the screening and Q & A with the director, there
will also be an annual distinguished lecture for the National Institutes of
Japanese Studies by Sabine Fruehstueck.
Below is the detailed program of the event. All events on March 6 are open
to public and registration is NOT required. I hope that some of you who
live in England could join us for this fascinating event!
