CINEMATON 5 - Heart of Japanese Cinema

Adrian here:

In a campaign to raise awareness about Japan and Japanese Cinema prior to the earthquake and tsunami catastrophe days ago, Cinematon! Cinematon! will host a blogathon focusing on Japanese cinema entitled HEART of JAPANESE CINEMA on April 10-16, 2011. Unlike other blogathons focusing on Japanese cinema, this blogathon will go back to its origins, to its fundamental core, its original themes, visual design and aesthetics and how it transformed throughout history into becoming one of the world's most flourishing and diverse cinema.

First, what is a blogathon? A blogathon is an internet activity where web writers or bloggers write anything related about the topic at hand during the course of the event. Hence, for our blogathon, writings will involve mainly about Japanese Cinema from its infancy to now. Since Cinematon! Cinematon! subscribes to pluralism, we encourage all bloggers and web writers to free themselves from the rigor of film criticism. Hence, you can write a photoreview, a poem review, a list of your top 10 Japanese Animated films, a video essay, a focus on Yasujiro Ozu, Akira Kurosawa, anything that suits your taste.
