Join JAEFF producer and panel chair George Crosthwait, film theorist and anthropologist Lola Martinez, Senior Lecturer in Japanese Studies Jennifer Coates, author and filmmaker Jasper Sharp, and curator, researcher and writer Julian Ross, as we discuss the legacy of the 1964 Olympics, the relationship between sport and the Japanese avant-garde, and physical gesture as a tool for cinematic expression.
