Don't miss this award-winning documentary with Q&A with the photographer Naoya Hatekayama. Tracing the Future: Photographer Naoya Hatakeyama follows the photographer, the subject of the exhibition at Minneapolis Institute of Art Excavating the Future City: Photographs by Naoya Hatakeyama as he photographs the devastated landscape of his hometown of Rikuzentakata in Iwate after the March 11, 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami ("3/11"). Hatakeyama, who co-represented Japan in the 2001 Venice Biennale and is renowned for meticulous photographs that explore the relationship between humankind and nature, suffered enormous losses on 3/11: his family home was washed away in the tsunami and his mother lost her life. Tracing the Future delves into the artist’s deeply personal response to the disaster and explores his four-year-long mission of documenting the place of his upbringing.

Followed by a Q&A with Naoya Hatakeyama.

87 min., Blu-ray color, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Yohei Hatakeyama. 

 

Naoya Hatakeyama's visit to Minneapolis and the film showing at Macalester College were made possible with generous support provided by the Arnold and Augusta Newman Foundation.
