Nobuyoshi Araki is arguably the most famous, controversial, and prolific photographer in contemporary Japan. Known foremost for his erotic photography, Araki's brash and disturbing images have caused him to be labeled both a bold provocateur and a misogynistic pornographer. With Arakimentari, American documentary filmmaker Travis Close takes an intimate look at the professional and personal life of this fascinating artist through background information and interviews with friends and contemporaries, including Bjork, Takeshi Kitano, Daido Moriyama, Richard Kern, and others. "A fast, efficient and richly satisfying look at an iconoclastic artist and his groundbreaking work" (Variety). In Japanese with English subtitles.
