2017-04-11 | “Shooting America”—Robert Kramer Retrospective

Filmmaker Robert Kramer (1939–1999) continues to be a towering inspiration to this day. He illustrated some of America’s most volatile and heated years in Ice and Milestones while his four-hour-plus masterpiece Route One / USA (The Mayor’s Prize, YIDFF ’89) became an unforgettable record of an America fatigued by the times. The three films will be shown in this special retrospective in Tokyo, providing ample food for thought about America—torn by dissent and compromise today.
