The Works of Hicozoh Akamatsu and Movie Title Design in Japan

National Film Center

This event has ended.

The manner in which the opening titles of a film appear upon the screen gives us one of the pleasures of watching movies. Hicozoh Akamatsu (b. 1948), the foremost figure among title designers of our time, has provided his excellent works for more than 400 Japanese films. This exhibition will present Akamatsu’s achievements and also survey a history of title design in Japan, which has embellished films with various types of lettering since the silent era.
