Catch the screening of Journey to Hokusai with Tom Killion & Chikara Motomura.

Local artist Tom Killion has long held a dream – to go to Japan and learn a traditional method of printing by hand. Deeply touched by the artist Hokusai’s prints when he was a child, Tom has for almost 50 years successfully created iconic California landscape prints. This film, created by Chikara Motomura, follows Tom’s journey to Japan to finally learn the traditional technique from Kenji Takenaka-- a 5th generation printer in Kyoto.
