Japanese craft documentaries
'Design Kimono' (2017) and 'Live a tradition in Maramures, Romania' (2014)
This film screening and discussion is in partnership with Japan Desk Scotland. In the documentary 'Design Kimono', Kyoto-based Koji Yoshie releases his imagination within the framework of traditional stencil dyeing technique and traditional kimono design patterns. On the other hand, in the 'Live a tradition' film, Maramures-based Ioan Pop, improvises while he sings traditional folk tunes. Topics for discussion include how traditions are preserved and the role of creativity in this process.
