@ Filmfront

1740 W 18th St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Thursday, April 18th, from 7PM - 10PM

filmfront is excited to host Davide Cazzaro, the publisher and editor-in-chief of Nang Magazine, an ambitious publishing project with a focus on cinema in Asia. Davide will discuss NANG and present the film HANA-BI by Takeshi Kitano, which is featured in NANG 5: INSPIRATION.

“NANG is an English-language 10-issue magazine which covers cinema and cinema cultures in the Asian world with passion and insight. Published twice a year over a period of five years, NANG’s ambition is to build a wonderfully rich and profound collection of words and images on cinema, for knowledge, inspiration, and enjoyment.”––www.nangmagazine.com

1997, digital projection, 103 mins

From an introduction to NANG in it’s first issue: “These are, as it so happens, most interesting times for both publishing and cinema (however we come to define them); what I love most about the former is also what I love about the latter: the giving-shape to things, the bringing-together of skills and ideas, the intersection of craft, creativity and technology, and the attempt to establish a “contact,” a moment of interaction and exchange.”

Copies of NANG will be available to purchase at the event via Inga, a forthcoming bookshop.
7:00-7:45PM Davide Cazzaro introduces NANG
