September Movie Night: Miss Hokusai

Keiichi Hara’s extraordinary animated film tells the story of O-Ei, the little-known daughter of the famed ukiyo-e artist Hokusai, creator of some of Japan’s most iconic images. An outspoken 23-year-old and the inheritor of her father’s artistic gifts and stubbornness, she shares his home, and serves as his assistant, often completing or redoing works for him. Unsophisticated, naïve, and fearless, she tugs insistently at the bridle of Edo tradition and propriety, showing her gentle side only

O-Ei’s story has also been told in Canadian author Katherine Govier’s excellent novel, The Ghost Brush. Ms Govier will introduce the screening with a reading from her novel and a discussion of O-ei’s life.when caring for her blind sister O-Nao. Miss Hokusai is mature, unsentimental and startlingly beautiful. Lovers of Japanese traditional culture and anime fans alike will find much to enjoy. Winner of the Satoshi Kon Award for best animated feature film at Montreal’s 2015 Fantasia International Film Festival.

Voiced by An Watanabe and Yutaka Matsushige
