MISS-HOKUSAI Poster UKMiss Hokusai Competition – Win a beautiful one sheet poster!

Out in UK cinemas 5th February as part of the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme.

While legendary painters such as Renoir, van Gogh and Monet knew the name and brush-strokes of Katsushika Hokusai, the story of his artisan daughter O-Ei had been lost to history – until now. Based on Hinako Sugiura’s cult manga Sarusuberi, this Annecy Award-winning feature film paints a new picture of Edo Japan’s forgotten artist and her daily life on a canvas similar to Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award-nominated The Wind Rises.

Renowned for his world-famous The Great Wave Off Kanagawa, Katsushika Hokusai is one of Edo Japan’s most renowned artists, known for mesmerising followers by painting sparrows on rice grains and monks on 180-square metre canvases. Europe would discover the immense talent of Katsushika Hokusai decades later. He would mesmerize a whole generation of artists, from Degas to Monet, Van Gogh and Klimt, Debussy and Baudelaire. His iconic The Great Wave off the coast of Kanagawa print is now seen on t-shirts and coffee mugs all over the world.

Most people however, are unaware of the woman who assisted him all her life.

This is the untold story of twenty-three year old O-Ei Hokusai (Anne Watanabe), who utilises both the talent and stubbornness she inherited from her father to paint uncredited in his stead amongst the clutter of their house-atelier.

From the director-writer duo behind Colorful and the studio that brought you Ghost In The Shell, Miss Hokusai is a wonderful celebration of artistic vision and a marvellously engrossing snapshot of a young woman seeking to nurture both her talent and family.
