Hamaguchi in Residence: Public Screening of “Storytellers”

Fri, 9/23 · 1:00 pm3:00 pm · Princeton Garden Theatre

Department of East Asian Studies; Department of Comparative Literature; Program in East Asian Studies

Directed by Hamaguchi Ryusuke and Sakai Ko
120 mins

The third and final installment of Hamaguchi and Ko’s groundbreaking series documenting the aftermath of the 2011 triple disaster in the northern Tohoku region. Following The Sound of the Waves (2012) and Voices from the Waves (2013), the film carries on a deep and patient excavation of trauma but also gently turns to consider how stories of the past may live on in their telling.

First come, first served; free to the public. Reserve your ticket on the the Garden Theater’s website. 
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.
