100 YEN LOVE

DIRECTOR: Masaharu Take - JAPAN

MISS HOKUSAI

DIRECTOR: Keiichi Hara - JAPAN

In 1814 Edo, an accomplished artist works tirelessly in his studio. His name is Katsushika Hokusai and decades later his work will come to mesmerize prominent Western artists. But few were aware of the woman who often painted for him while remaining un-credited. Based on the manga Sarusuberi by Hinako Sugiura, Miss Hokusai is the untold and beautifully animated story of O-Ei, aka Katsushika Oi, a free-spirited woman overshadowed by her larger-than-life father—her own art is so powerful that it leads to trouble. (93 mins.)

Sponsored by LAIKA and the Consular Office of Japan in Portland.
