The documentary focuses on a little known population: the Japanese Brazilians and follows well-known and emerging artists of Japanese descent from various generations from the 20th Century who immigrated to Latin America.
Created by Executive Producer Stella Holmes and filmed with Emmy Award-winning Producer Linda Corley, West Encounters East focuses on the fusion of culture, history and tradition in the works of these artists and explores the ongoing integration of Asian traditions into Latin American culture. The story of these multicultural artists, told primarily through their canvases, sculptures, ceramics and photography, brings to light the dynamic and little-known saga of the Japanese presence in Brazil.
