British Museum Presents: Hokusai is a groundbreaking documentary and exclusive private view of the forthcoming British Museum exhibition Hokusai: Beyond The Great Wave. Filmed in Japan and the UK, the film focuses on Hokusai’s work, life and times in the great, bustling metropolis of Edo, modern Tokyo. Using extraordinary close-ups and pioneering 8K video technology, Hokusai’s paintings and prints are examined by world experts who are at the forefront of digital art history. Hokusai spent his life studying and celebrating our common humanity as well as deeply exploring the natural and spiritual worlds, using the famous volcano Mount Fuji as a protective presence and potential source of immortality. Hokusai is an artist who influenced Monet, Van Gogh and other Impressionists, is the father of manga and the only painter with his own emoji.
