‘Kubota’s Kimonos: A History on Silk’ documentary takes part in The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival
We are pleased to announce that ‘Kubota’s Kimonos: A History on Silk’ documentary has been shortlisted for screening as part of The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival. An online premiere and a filmmaker’s talk will become available tomorrow, on 10 June (00:00 London time, 02:00 Moscow time, 04:00 Tashkent time) at https://watch.eventive.org/aobff21.
The ICF-supported documentary was created by a Russian filmmaker Radik Kudoyarov and tells the story of Itchiku Kubota, a Japanese text artist who devoted his life to recreating ancient dying ‘tsujigahana’ technique. Preserving Itchiku Kubota’s legacy and showcasing his arts around the world are among the key areas of work of the Foundation.
