Japanese Documentary Filmmaker Haneda Sumiko: Authorship and Gender Discourses
This project entitled proposes a rediscovery of probably the most important female documentary maker from Japan, Haneda Sumiko (1926-), who was a pioneer female documentarist and one of the most prolific in post-war Japan. Haneda was one of the few women working in the influential Iwanami Productions where she participated in the creation of many short and long non-fiction works from the early years of the company between 1950s and 1980s and as an independent filmmaker until 2012.

The project is the result of a collaboration of scholars working on Japanese Cinema from several angles -Gender Studies, Documentary Film, Film Theory and Authorship- who are joining efforts to cast light on this still under-researched female director.

This event is carried out in partnership between Japan Research Centre (SOAS), BIMI (Birkbeck Institute for Moving Images), Birkbeck, the Japan Foundation, Meiji Gakuin and also supported by the Great Britain SASAKAWA Foundation and "On the Move" Fellowship - Society of Spanish Researcher in the UK (SRUK/CERU).
