The fantastic guys over at Kino 10 throw another intriguing Sunday short film night not to be missed! This time they are rolling with the ever more popular theme of East Asian short films, including an original live Narrative set to a silent film, as well as an improvised performance over classic silent Japanese anime by the musical ensemble Mute. What more could you want from your Sunday evening! More details from the Kino 10 peeps, a free tune and a sweet video after the jump!
Talking of Kino: 10, you must check out their blog. If you like animation, visuals, awesome media art and short films then you’ll be completely enlightened. Below is a music video they posted recently by the amazing animator Celyn Brazier who has created art works for the likes of The Financial Times, Apple & the familiar Ninja Tune Label. It’s a stunning piece of motion art commissioned by the legendary Wagon Christ (aka Luke Vibert) for the track Chunkothy, from his latest album Toomorrow, released back in march this year.

More on the film night: KINO 10: Eastern Promises
Sunday 27 November @ The Bulls Head, Moseley, Birmingham, B13 8HW
Doors open at 7:30pm (films start at 8pm)
Join KINO 10 for an evening of short films with an East Asian theme. All the films either hail from China, Japan, or Korea or have these countries as a central theme within them. As always there’s a real mix of films; music video, documentary, archive, drama, anime, and more.
As if the films weren’t enough, we’ll even have some very special guests performing live:
Lonesome Panther is a writer, performer, artist, comedian and storyteller. Tonight he’ll be narrating an original narrative he’s written to accompany a silent Japanese short film.
Mute are a Birmingham-based musical ensemble. Tonight, two of their members will be performing an improvised score over a classic silent Japanese anime film.
I may have said this before, but truly, this is one not to be missed.
