A rough cut is footage not yet polished into a complete work—a fragment violently torn from the immediate gaze of an individual. Yamagata: Rough Cut! will present an online screening of four videos (rough cuts) from flmmakers living or born in Asia, including Japan, as well as a dialogue with creators and participants.
This program will be a special chance to participate in the language and images born of film, with a focus on sharing and dialogue. is year’s event will explore the rules of sharing and dialogue unique to an online festival. Please join us for a conversation that will take everyone—filmmakers, critics, researchers and spectators—beyond their individual role in the film festival.
