Searching for Experimental Japanese Film

The history of experimental arts in Japan is less a mystery to outsiders now, thanks to Miryam Sas, a Berkeley film and comparative literature scholar. In her Experimental Arts in Postwar Japan: Moments of Encounter, Engagement, and Imagined Return, she analyzes a crucial period in the history of those developments. And here on Moving Image Archive News, she describes what it took to find the material she needed to write her book. (See, MIAN book listing for April 2011.)

She says: “There is lots more to be written about this subject: may the ranks of those working on this subject grow!”
