I'm so happy to announce that CAMPAIGN will be screened at MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art in New York!!
It is scheduled to be screened from April 7th until 13th, 2008.

Today, I and my wife went to MoMA to have a meeting. A publicist from POV (which will air CAMPAIGN this summer on PBS) also attended the meeting. It was a combination of a Danish curator, an Irish publicist of the film department, a New York born publicist of POV, and a Japanese filmmaker (and his Japanese wife). Only in New York!
MoMA and POV will cooperate in our publicity efforts.

To be honest, I had nothing to do with art or film until I moved to New York in 1993. But when I became a film student at School of Visual Arts, I took an advantage of free admission and commuted to MoMA on a regular basis - watching films, paintings, sculptures, and photographs. It was in MoMA where I absorbed all the basics and the newest crops in modern art, like a sponge. It's just too good to be true that they are showing my film there. I'm so honored.
