A day before the start of CAMERA JAPAN Rotterdam at LantarenVenster, on Wednesday 26 September, the organisation of CAMERA JAPAN Festival will present a multidisciplinary evening at WORM in the same city, consisting of a documentary about an iconic figure in the Tokyo punk scene, Jun Taniguchi, and a performance by violinist Hoshiko Yamane.
The documentary is titled Mother Fucker and is directed by Noriko Oishi. It refers to the charming stage name of Jun Taniguchi, the driving force behind punk record label Less Than TV. The film offers good and fun insights into a diverse and inclusive part of the Tokyo punk scene in which Taniguchi plays an important role that goes well beyond the music. The number and diversity of bands appearing in this film is staggering, keep a notepad ready to write down your favourites!
After the biopic, you can enjoy the performance of Hoshiko Yamane. Hoshiko Yamane is a Japanese Berlin-based classically trained violinist and composer. She is the current member of the German electronic music group Tangerine Dream. She has also toured the globe with her techno solo project Tukico, and collaborated with artists ranging from Klangstein (Soundstone) player Jürgen Heidemann to singer-songwriter Jane Birkin.
Tickets for the kick-off at WORM are € 8,00 and can be purchased online. The evening starts at 20.30.
