On-Gaku: Our Sound (Movie)

Sponsored by JM Family Enterprises

Time: 11 am and 2 pm

(71mins., 2019, Non-Rated, Animation, Drama, Musical, Comedy - In Japanese, subtitled in English)

Cost: $5 with paid museum admission (children ages 3 and under free)

When you’re a bored teenager looking for thrills, sometimes the only thing you can turn to is rock ‘n roll. Having no skill, money or even a full set of drums, a trio of high school delinquents decide they are destined for musical glory. In a quest to impress their only friend Aya, avoid a rival gang, and – most importantly – jam out. Animated almost entirely by director Kenji Iwaisawa, and featuring a lead performance by Japanese alt-rock legend Shintaro Sakamoto, ON-GAKU: OUR SOUND brings its own sound and vision to the Hiroyuki Ohashi manga from which it was adapted. With pitch-perfect deadpan humor, the film presents a highly original take on the beloved slacker comedy: a lo-fi buddy film with a blaring musical finale that will leave you wanting an immediate encore. – Gkids

Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19

The Basics of Katazome (Workshop)

Time: 10am – 3pm
Cost: $150 (Two-Day Workshop). Advance Registration Required.

Katazome is a Japanese resistance process used for hundreds of years in Japanese textiles. Traditional artisans created a resist paste made from a rice flour mixture and applied it to the cloth using elaborately hand-carved stencils. Wherever this paste is applied will resist the dye, creating a pattern. Traditionally katazome is dyed with indigo to create the traditional white and blue Japanese textiles. During this 2-day workshop, students will learn the basics of katazome, the preparation of the fabric and resist paste, the making of stencils, the application of the paste onto fabric, and the dyeing of the fabric in a natural indigo vat. Along with having access to vintage stencils from Japan, students will also learn contemporary non-traditional methods that one can use at home.
