Keep Watching for Japan: A Night of Film Screenings

A wonderful friend of ours, Aiko Masubuchi, is hosting a night of film screenings at Think Coffee on Mercer St. Friday, April 8th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. Aiko is from Japan and would like to extend an invitation to get together to hear from others who are working to make a difference, and celebrate some Japanese cinema.
Thanks to Ian Stimler, co-founder of KIMSTIM, they will be screening shorts by Koji Yamamura, a highly acclaimed Japanese independent animator. They will most likely be screening Franz Kafka’s A Country Doctor, 2003 Oscar short film nominee, Mt. Head, and a couple other shorts.

The screening will be followed by a live Skype conversation with members of My Japan Earthquake, a grassroots movement working directly with those affected by the earthquake and tsunami. They will be open to any questions you may have – a good change from some of the impersonal news we are receiving.

We hope you can make it out to show some support and looking forward to seeing you soon!

Our Story

New York City based photographer, Mara Kristula-Green, grew up in Tokyo, Japan for 18 years. After viewing photographs, videos, and articles addressing the earthquakes and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11th, Mara knew the country both she and her friends and family call home needed immediate and long term relief. After speaking with high school classmates in Japan who founded My Japan Earthquake, Mara saw an opportunity to raise funds and awareness through the photographic community in the United States. With the help of photographer Kaz Senju and curator Lisa Gonzalez, Red Dot Relief was formed.

Red Dot Relief will be holding an online photographic print sale with all proceeds given to organizations that can best provide support to the affected areas. We are looking for emerging and established photographers willing to donate photographs for the print sale. More information is soon to come.
