On the film

"fast moving, riveting...maintains its sense of urgency from start to finish.”
-- Ernest Hardy, LA Weekly

"A moving film that challenges our notions of art and expression..."
--Aura Bogoda, KPFK Radio

" important, ultimately moving film that gets at the very heart of what it means to be an artist..."
--Daniel Alarcón, author, Lost City Radio and War by Candlelight

"Against the Grain lets artists in their own words and images create light where there was only the gray of deceit and corruption before.”
--Russell C. Leong, UCLA Amerasia Journal

"Kaneko's film explores these broad and daunting questions in a series of portraits that are at once probing, illuminating, and ultimately, humanizing.”
--Jonathan Ritter, Assistant Professor, UC Riverside

Dear Anna,
My name is Mariano Carranza.
I'm a Peruvian student filmmaker currently going to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.
I've seen the trailer of your film and I'm really wanting to see the whole piece.
Unfortunately I'm in New York at the moment, and, there won't be any more screenings here in the city!
I was wondering, how can I see this film?
My brother will be going to the "Casa de Yuyachkani" screening, this Tuesday, will he be able to buy a copy there?
Or do you think it might be possible that I can get a DVD copy of the film?
I was really impressed by the trailer, since I am in love with my country and something like this has not been done before.
Please let me know.
Best of lucks

I had a chance to combine my two loves in life recently and had a two weeks' holiday in wonderful France, to which I had been before, and had loved so much. I took a little Renault rental car and headed off from Paris, to the Palace of Versailles, to Chartres then southward to sunny Provence, via the Auvergne region, with the Songs of the Auvergne playing repeated on the CD player.
Magnifique, comme toujours. I saw many art galleries and followed the footsteps of artists, like poor Vincent Van Gogh.
Back home all too soon, I ordered a canvas print from, choosing this painting by Cézanne,, to remember my trip by.
