Oscar award winning filmmaker, Hamaguchi Ryusuke, is among the most thoughtful and original filmmakers working in global cinema today. He has made movies across diverse genres, technical experimentations and production modalities. During his short residence in Princeton, Hamaguchi organized a workshop to develop three short films from a single screenplay. Ten student writers, actors and production assistants, selected from a pool of over one hundred applicants, worked over the course of two intense weekend days to learn, rehearse, plan and shoot the three film iterations, which Hamaguchi then edited himself. This public session will feature screenings of the films and critical reflections on the production process.
