2012-02-20 | Kimura Eibun Retrospective

Kimura Eibun (Hidefumi) has brought us a number of TV documentaries to our homes as the director of RKB Mainichi Broadcasting Corporation. His multihued visions are said to be free-willed and sometimes even nonsensical. With his work, the beauty, sadness and humor of human beings are what spew out of the movie screen.
