The 2018 Proteus Film Festival concludes at 1 PM on Sunday, 7 October at the Z. Saturday night’s music headliner, Kishi Bashi, will preview clips from his upcoming song film “Omoiyari” in a moderated discussion led by Stuart Minnis, documentary filmmaker and Professor of Communication at Virginia Wesleyan University.
Omoiyari is a Japanese word that means to have sympathy and compassion towards another person; a universal concept in human interaction that is required for a sustainable society. It is the bedrock of the film.
Kishi Bashi explores how empathy and the lack of it has played key roles in our modern quest for social equality.
