A Japanese heARTist Inspires A Docu*Memory Film

"Koi" painting by Yuri


greetings, heARTists and heART lovers of this heARTistic universe!

it’s the 8th day of the 9th month, and time for more heARTwork by Yuri.

again, this quarter, we digress from our usual exhibit of Yuri’s heARTwork (scroll down to view older posts featuring it). instead, we continue to bring you news about the 5-part series titled “War Brides of Japan, a docu*memory”, made in Yuri’s honor.
even though we were this close to wrapping up the films last quarter, we got so busy cutting new shorts and trailers to enter into film festivals. please give us a few more days, then check out our Vimeo link below to view the films.
