Description

Takeda
México, 2017
Documentary, 95 min.

Synopsis
“Takeda” is a film about the universality of the human being seen through the eyes of a Japanese painter that has adopted the Mexican culture.

Takeda is Japanese painter, descendant of a family os Samurais, whose mission was to rescue the identity, honour and tradition of ancient Japan through the Mexican Muralist movement. On this mission he became envolped in Mexico, its traditions, full of colour, strength and nostalgia evoke his past.

Takeda leads us on a journey to deep Mexico, to connect with the nostalgia of a world full of rituals that is in extinction. Distanced from the modern world, Takeda seeks contemplation, the essece of life and humankind. Shinzaburo Takeda teaches us much more than technique, he teaches us to reconcile and discover the language of art to express and reflect upon our human condition.
