Future is Primitive screening at Doomed


Japanese film maker Katsuya Nonaka’s skateboard and shakuhachi documentary ‘Future is Primitive’ is screening at Doomed tonight.

Nonaka talks to leading skaters from all around the world, as well as Japanese and non-Japanese players of the traditional bamboo flute, the shakuhachi. Although these are two seemingly very different activities, both are now encountering changing status and a rise in popularity, bringing about both problems and opportunities.

Katsuya Nonaka is a member of The Seppuku Pistols, who play Edo era punk on Japanese traditional instruments, and a skateboarding enthusiast. The 50 minute film will be followed by a Q&A session with the director. Event curated by Keiko Yoshida.

Free entry. Doors open 6:30pm, movie starts at 7pm. Doomed Gallery is located at 65-67 Ridley Rd, London E8 2NP.
