I’m helping out (in a small way) Japan Center of Bogota, Colombia, who invited me to give a workshop last fall in Universidad de Los Andes, as well a team of young filmmakers of  who are making a beautiful video BUNKA promoting the center.

They have decided to create a T-shirts to help fund the project. Most of the shirts will be available in Colombia, but they have made 20 shirt available in the US. You can make a purchase through my shop while supplies lasts.
Unixes M only, we ship to US address only. Thank you for understanding.

Please read the statement from the film collective below:

Bunka is the Japanese world for culture and the name of the first art-film video by our film collective.   It is a cinematic exploration of 5 japanese arts: Chanoyu, Ikebana, Kendo, Shodo and Taiko. This short-film was conceived with the idea of supporting the recently opened Japan Center in Bogotá, which offers free activities for the public while.

This limited series of shirts were made in order to support the video project, thanks to the Donation of Japanese illustrator Yuko Shimizu.

By purchasing this t-shirt you will be supporting the video production and part of the planning and production of an art exhibition to be held on the second semester of 2019 (Date TBD). You will be credited both in the video and the exhibition and we will be forever grateful. 

So far the project has been possible, thanks to the voluntary collaboration of several talented artist and some private donations, however we are far from achieving the total amount required to cover whole the productions expenses.
