Event description

Description

Celebrating the UK premier screening of Born Bone Born as part of the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2019, join us for an evening dedicated to Okinawa, Japan’s tropical southern paradise. Dating back to the time of the Ryukyu Kingdom, Okinawa developed a beautiful and colourful history and fascinating cultures, including unique food, music and language.

The evening will be led by Dr Vicky Young (University of Cambridge), who will give an overview of Okinawa, its history, culture and language. The evening will also feature live performances from the Okinawa Sanshinkai, showcasing traditional Okinawan music and dance.

Booking for this event is free but spaces are limited so booking is essential.

Born Bone Born directed by Toshiyuki Teruya (Gori) will be screened at Institute of Contemporary Arts in London on 10 February and further 6 UK venues between February and March 2019. For more information and other screenings, please visit the special website Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme.
