Special event this First Saturday (and beyond) featuring short documentary video Gifu People by Sumida riverside local Shoji Onuma. The perennially curious photographer has published an exhaustive book on Japanese sento public baths and another on the “ganguro” deep-tanned  “panda” girls of Shibuya, among much else. How do you describe this latest project? Ask Shoji:

Haha, it’s simple!, she writes. The film introduces Gifu people who are my friends: a ceramicist, a Japanese sweets craftsman, a baker, and an antique dealer. They will also come on Saturday. I want to show you!

Film screens twice daily 4pm and 6pm (4pm only this Saturday) at Kawauso, 10/31–11/6 (closed on 11/4) Saturday 11/1 event includes music and food, charge ¥3800. Reservations for 11/1 advised.
