about

The Shell Collector is a Japanese film directed by Yoshifumi Tsubota, beautifully captured on16mm (film) on a small island in Okinawa, Japan. Based on a story by Anthony Doerr, the film is about a blind academic shell collector (Gakusha) who encounters a venomous sea snail (Imogai) which can kill a person with its venom. If stung, it induces awesome hallucinations that ends in death or a cure (for a mysterious disease that has been plaguing that region). What ensues is a boatload of trouble for this guy who just wants his solitude by the sea.

Billy Martin New York, New York

Billy Martin was born in NYC in 1963. In the late 1970's, he devoted himself to music and dove into Manhattan’s thriving, eclectic musical landscape.

From the roots of the downtown scene he emerged with Medeski Martin and Wood, bridging the harmonic complexity of jazz, the conversational fluency of free improvisation, and the groove and swagger of classic R&B and funk.
