Tadao Ando: From Emptiness to Infinity (Trailer) portrays one of the world’s most renowned architects, the Japanese “master of minimalism” Tadao Ando. His award-winning brutalist architecture creates a spectacular connection between Japanese tradition and contemporary modernism. The film introduces Ando’s world-famous buildings and accompanies him at work, as he shares his sources of inspiration with us. (2013, 52 min, digital)

Preceded by The Successor of Kakiemon (Trailer). How does one take over a company that is four-centuries old and has been run by one’s father, his father’s father and so on? Kakiemon is a type of Japanese porcelain renowned all over the world. Its appeal lies in the perfect balance between the splendidly colored and precisely executed enamel painting against the pure white background of negative space. It is now time for the father to pass on leadership of the company to his only son. Is he up to the task that lies ahead? (2012, 49 mins, digital)
