Mark Cousins (off the telly) drops a line to say:
Dear film pals and documentary fans
I have curated a wee season of four films by one of the greatest, and most rarely screened, doc filmmakers, Shinsuke Ogawa, at the Sheffield doc/fest from 6-9 November this year. His best work was in the 70s. He moved in with his subjects for up to a decade. He made the first environmental protest films. Just thought I’d tell you cos when I did something similar last year, I got complaints that I didn’t tell people!
The films are astonishing. The man is astonishing. If you are interested, I have pasted in my notes below.
