poster for An-archive: Explore 8mm film of Setagaya

This event has ended.

Between 1955 and 1975, 8mm film was used to recorded the lives of the people living in Setagaya. Most of these reels, however, have since lain dormant and forgotten. The aim of the “An-archive (hole-archive),” which was established in 2015, is to work on archiving this footage. This exhibition will introduce the 80 or so films that have been digitized to date - the footage totaling more that 12 hours - giving visitors a chance to think about how we record and archive our lives for posterity.
At the special screening event on November 3, you can see iron bridge construction of the mid-1930s and footage of a school summer excursion shot the same year that “Tokyo Story” (1960) was filmed.

Venue: Seikatsu-kobo Gallery (3F)
