Due to popular demand, Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation
proudly presents a second screening of

The Strangest Stranger (2016)
A film directed by Magnus Bärtås
Based On The Story of Joni Waka & Kafka

The Strangest Stranger, a documentary film on Tokyo-based art impresario Joni Waka pictures one of Japan's most known/celebrated mysterious cultural gurus, who is both (deliberately) enigmatic and indefatigably open to people, ideas and opportunities. Joni's canvas is the entire world. He imaginatively orchestrates links between contemporary artists, architects, authors, academics and curators, with fashion designers, gallerists, movie makers, musicians and writers constantly discovered and warmly included into his ever-morphing cultural circles.

Joni draws on multifold linguistic skills, a longstanding family history in Europe and Asia – and most of all on his expansive generosity – to colour the world and make it brighter. This is his story.

Dr Gene Sherman will give introductory talk before the 4pm screening.

3pm refreshments served
3.15pm introductory talk
3.30pm screening commences (duration 73 min)

Screening proudly supported by the Swedish Film Institute.
