This event is part of Conversations, a celebration of Hamaguchi’s films, hosted by the Department of East Asian Studies, the Department of Comparative Literature, and the Program in East Asian Studies. During this series, Hamaguchi will engage the Princeton community over the course of a week in residence. A mini retrospective of his more recent films, including Drive My Car, will screen throughout the week at the Garden Theater. Most generously, he will lead a series of workshops through which a small number of students will develop and produce short films. More information about public events can be found on the Conversations website.
