JFF - Tower of Sun

JFF - Tower of Sun UNCL G

Fondly thought of as the Picasso of Japan, Taro Okamoto worked as a prolific avant-garde artist, philosopher, and writer until his death at 85 years old. Kosai Sekine’s colourfully ambitious debut documentary is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the roots of Okamoto’s iconic work, Tower of the Sun, constructed for the government-organised Expo ’70 in Osaka, themed "Progress and Harmony for Mankind”. Conversely, the artist’s 70-metre tall tower was the antithesis to this message and a comment on Okamoto’s political and social concerns for the future of Japan. Get to know the artist behind the one-of-a-kind Tower of the Sun in this beautiful and powerful documentary.
