The Japan Society will present a first look at Wax Factory's new work-in-progress, 416 Minutes, at 7:30pm on Thursday, June 2.

The event will be hosted by creator and director Ivan Talijancic and will include a short film screening and a Q&A session during which the audience is invited to share feedback as part of a collaborative developmental process.

The work, which is inspired by the imagination of artist Haruki Murakami, shadows an actress whose escape from a film studio sets her on a course of chance encounters in the unsettling hours of the night when everything takes on a particularly eerie glow.
