My best friend, Ken Nishikawa, who I often make music videos and documentaries with, has just completed a one-hour long documentary about the life of one of Japan's last true Geisha.
Matsuchiyo circa 1965
The film is entitled, "Matsuchiyo - The Life of a Geisha" and is scheduled to premiere at film festivals later this year. Please enjoy the trailer.
I was proud to be able to help Ken out in a very small way with this wonderful and fascinating film.
Matsuchiyo was one of the top geisha in Japan. Here she is with
Hollywood Movie-star Edward G. Robinson in the 1950s
I'll be linking to the full length film as soon as some items concerning publishing rights, etc. are cleared. This is a fantastic film, folks!
