- KAMEJIN-EVENT: Monday 13 January 19:00-21:00
Screening of the film Kamejin (2018, Yumor Productions), preceded by short artist talk by Philo Ouweleen on the film and its connection to her artproject 'Stories from Kameoka.
Kamejin tells the story of Anna Namikawa who works at H-shopping street in Kameoka. The film shows the charm of Kameoka, but also the challenges Anna faces while living and working in this rural city.
Anna Namikawa is the protagonist in this film, another significant character is Go Naito. I have met, interviewed and painted both Anna and Go's portrait for my artproject 'Stories from Kameoka'.
I am incredibly lucky that I was able to meet the directors of the movie and attended an intimate screening of the film. Watching the film and meeting those involved with the filmproject, I could clearly see the passion for and the charm of Kameoka. I am very grateful and proud to be able to bring this wonderful film to Amsterdam. Click here to view the trailer.
