David Burliuk and the Japanese Avant-garde charts Burliuk's work during the two years he spent in Japan (1920-1922), staging exhibitions in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Yokohama; working with Japanese artists; and leaving a lasting influence on the growing Japanese Futurist movement. The film's many locations include the small island of Ogasawara in the Pacific Ocean, which Burliuk visited in the manner of Gauguin.

The film is being screened in conjunction with the Museum's current exhibition Futurism and After: David Burliuk, 1882-1967 (website).

The Ukrainian Museum gratefully acknowledges the generosity and cooperation of Michael Craig, director of David Burliuk and the Japanese Avant-garde, in allowing the Museum to screen this film.
