Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of audiovisual materials created during the production of "Dream Window: Reflections on the Japanese Garden." This video was produced in 1992 by Executive Producers Paul B. Johnson and Toshio Murayama, Senior Producer Laura T. Schneider, and Co-producer John W. Hiller in association with Kajima Kensetsu Kabushiki Kaisha and presented by WETA-TV, Washington, D.C. The video allows viewers to experience the secrets of Japanese gardens and their influence on Japanese society today and features both traditional and contemporary Japanese gardens including those of the legendary Moss Temple of Saihoji, Katsura Imperial Villa (Katsura Rikyu), Tenryu-shi, the Ken Domon Museum of Photography (Domon Ken Kinenkan), and Sogetsu Hall. The video won an Emmy. Materials include interpositives, mixes, masters, sound reels, interviews, film transfers, dubs, edited master, and related materials. Also included are camera rolls for "Gardens of the Mughal Empire," a proposed video that evolved into an interactive on-line exhibition (http://www.mughalgardens.org/intro.html) that recreates and studies the Shalamar Gardens of Lahore, Pakistan and in India and the rest of South Asia in their cultural contexts.
