Tema Hima: Time, Work and Life in Tohoku, North East Japan

I am actually pretty excited to catch this film at A Design Film Festival (#DFF2013), given that I missed the exhibition when I was in Tokyo last year. 

It was an interesting exhibition that featured the livelihood of the people in Tohoku: the craft, the food and the living spaces. Click HERE for more information about the actual exhibition held at 21_21 Design Sight.

This year’s A Design Film Festival’s line up is pretty awesome, and you can view the full listing either on their website, or via a listing I’ve written for PoachedMag
