Japanese Underground Cinema Program : Takahiko iimura

An experimental filmmaker and video artist in Tokyo and New York since the 1960s, Takahiko iimura has a program from his early period in the 1960s produced in Tokyo. In the beautifully choreographed Anma(1963) and Rose Color Dance(1965) by Tatsumi Hijikata, the founder of Ankoku Butoh dance, Takahiko iimura transforms his camera into an extension of his body. In Junk(1962), Love(1962), and Onan(1964), iimura improvises with vanguard musicians Takehisa Kosugi, Yoko Ono, and Yasunao Tone, with exhilarating results. Of Love Jonas Mekas reviewed as "a poetic and sensuous exploration of the body."
