"Kusama – Infinity" explores artist Yayoi Kusama’s journey from a conservative upbringing in Japan to her brush with fame in America during the 1960s (where she rivaled Andy Warhol for press attention) and concludes with the international fame she has finally achieved within the art world. Now in her 80s, Kusama has spent the last 30 years living in a mental institution in Japan. Kusama – Infinity premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
The feature film will be preceded by short film, "Voyager." Written by Phillip Carrel Dancer Yuka Oba of the Grand Rapids Ballet, "Voyager" explores the idea of our resistance to nature and what happens when we overcome our fear to find peaceful harmony. With original music by Bronze Wolf.
