Film Night - The Amazing Overlap of Japanese and Shaker Design

If you've ever cast an appreciative glance at a simple Shaker table or marveled at the elegant joinery in a Japanese box, then you'll enjoy this short film.

Come watch "Kindred Spirits", a companion DVD to the 1996 Mingei int'l Museum's exhibition, KINDRED SPIRITS—The Eloquence of Function in American Shaker and Japanese Arts of Daily Life. This 27-minute film "discusses the similarities and differences between Japanese and Shaker cultures and their expression in arts of daily life."

(Thanks to Elise for the great suggestion on this one!)
