East meets Far East

Screenings of 'A2-B-C' around the world continue this month, with the film showing in several cities on the East Coast of the US.  Beginning in Washington DC during the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital, 'A2-B-C' will screen in the strand curated by the United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) Traveling Festival on March 26 (Screening INFO).

'A2-B-C' will then screen in New York City on March 30 where I am thrilled to be invited for the post-screening discussion (screening INFO).

The screenings will culminate at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute's lecture and film series "Japan At the Brink: Precarity of Youth in Films of Disaster and Dystopia" on March 31 (screening INFO).  I am extremely honoured to be invited to take part in the post-screening discussion led by Hideaki Fujiki, professor of film at Nagoya University.  I first had the honour of meeting professor Fujiki at last year's Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival and then again when he invited me to Nagoya last year to screen the film in his department (INFO).
