Devotion

DEVOTION investigates the extremely complex and hierarchical relationships among a loyal group of filmmakers who dedicated up to 30 years making films for one man--Ogawa Shinsuke. These heartbreaking and sometimes funny stories have never been told on film before. Rare footage, stills, and diaries from archives as well as interviews with Oshima Nagisa, Hara Kazuo and Robert Kramer make this historical inquiry visually exciting and valuable.
Reviews
“Barbara Hammer gives reign to a panoply of characters in her reconstruction, at once attentive to details of material culture - raising a beautiful silkworm, or the life cycles of rice - and telling a chapter of social history that is both weighty and difficult, a chronicle of a communitarian vision gone awry” - Thor Anderson, UC Berkeley

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape, Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad, which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
