Shinsuke Ogawa

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.

Cheers medears,
