What a great series!

Unfortunately, this is bad timing for collaborating. There isn’t enough
lead time, and your dates straddle the end of the semester (so the front
end lands on finals).

That said, Michigan has what is probably the longest running Japanese film
series around (over 40 years straight). And we show 35mm when we can,
benshi as much as possible for the silents. and regularly bring in
directors or actors. I’d love to collaborate with people if we can start
planning a good 6 months out.

I’m bringing Wada Atsushi to A2 Film Festival this March, but he could only
afford a few days away from teaching duties.

We will be thinking about next year’s series this March......let me know if
you are interested in collaboration.
