Symposium: Visual Underground: Theatre Scorpio & Japanese Experimental Cinema of the Sixties

Location: Quebec, Canada
Symposium Date: September 16, 2011

Over the past few years the legacy of the Japanese cinematic and artistic experiments of the 1960s has received renewed international attention in academia in Japan, Europe and North America. Visual Underground: Theatre Scorpio & Japanese Experimental Cinema of the sixties presents and reflects on a body of rarely screened experimental Japanese films from this decade. Visual Underground is a uniquely conceived event, comprised of three days of film screenings (Sept. 16-18, 2011) and a one-day academic symposium (Sept.17), both of which are free and open to the general public.

Visual Underground will screen a series of experimental films associated with the legendary Theatre Scorpio (Sasori-za), as well as with Japan’s first art-house distributor and production house, the Art
Theatre Guild (ATG).
