West Encounters East

Episode 1 of 1

The Brazilian capital of Sao Paulo hosts the largest Japanese population outside of Japan. Within this little-known niche - the result of a century-old diaspora - lies a thriving arts community. WEST ENCOUNTERS EAST explores the unique fusion of Eastern and Western artistic traditions in the works of well-known and emerging Japanese-Brazilian artists. The documentary examines their lifestyles, traditions, culture and art while exploring the themes of immigration, dual identity, alienation and assimilation in their work. Art historian and collector Stella M. Holmes guides viewers through Brazil's art world, introducing the artists and discussing their modes of expression and creative processes.
