"Dawn of Japanese Animation" screenings in NYC

If any of you are in (or can visit) NYC next week, the Japan Society is presenting four programs - looks like only one screening of each - of black & white, 1920s-40s animation:

Globus Film Series - Dawn of Japanese Animation

Includes work by Yasuji Murata (mostly WWII propaganda shorts!), cut-out and cel animation by Noburo Ofuji, many others. All programs are paired with short silent, live action films from the era, too. I'm planning on catching programs 2 & 4; look for the short, chubby girl w/purple hair in the long black coat and say hi!
