Helen McCarthy, Jayne Pilling, and Koji Yamamura in London!

The Japan Foundation (U.K.) brings Koji Yamamura, one of Japan’s most successful and distinctive animators, to London to discuss his work and his position in the growing Japanese animation industry. The event will commence with an illustrated talk by Helen McCarthy, co-author of The Anime Encyclopedia and the very exciting, soon-to-be-released The Anime Encyclopedia 2. This talk will be followed by the seminar, which will take the shape of a conversation between Koji Yamamura and Jayne Pilling, founder and director of the British Animation Awards.
