This event has ended.
This exhibition looks back on the origins of Japanese animation a century ago, spotlighting four pioneers in the field: Hekoten Shimokawa, Seitaro Kiyama, Junichi Kouchi, and Senpan Maekawa. It also looks at ties between prewar manga and animation culture, and screens the recently rediscovered “Namakura Katana” – Japan’s oldest animation – and a tribute by contemporary animators to Hekoten Shimokawa.
