Art & Architecture On Screen: Tokyo Stories

Saturday, June 24, 2023 | 1:00PM

A thrilling encounter with one of the world’s great art capitals. 


Based on a major exhibition at the Ashmolean in Oxford, Tokyo Stories spans 400 years of incredibly dynamic art – ranging from the delicate woodblock prints of Hokusai and Hiroshige, to Pop Art posters, contemporary photography, Manga, film, and brand-new artworks that were created on the streets. 


The exhibition was a smash-hit, five-star success and brought a younger and more diverse audience to the museum. This cinematic production uses the exhibition as a launch pad to travel to Tokyo itself and explore the art and artists of the city more fully. 


Beautifully illustrated and richly detailed, this film looks at a city that has undergone constant destruction and renewal over its 400-year history, resulting in one of the most vibrant and interesting cities on the planet. 


“Tokyo has a powerful engine that just doesn’t stop. There is an energy, a particular floating power in Tokyo. Whatever happens, this city gets rebuilt again and continues to move forwards.” – Machida Kumi


This production runs one hour, 30 minutes.
