Near Equal Kusama Yayoi-I Adore Myself

2008, 108 min., digital video. Directed by Takako Matsumoto.  U.S. Premiere.

2008 JAPAN CUTS Audience Award Winner!

The highly anticipated documentary Near Equal Kusama Yayoi: I Adore Myself films wildly charismatic artist Yayoi Kusama (born in 1929) in recent years as she passionately works on a large series of 50 drawings and makes cameo appearances on TV shows, as Matsumoto attends Kusama’s gallery opening in New York City, where she lived from 1957-73. The film reveals Kusama’s eccentricities, self-obsession and intense dedication to her art.
