Memories accumulate from our daily lives, like a pool of sand
accumulates from the ocean. How can the memories reflected in
these films trickle into our own memories and begin to affect our
“Memory and Imagined Landscape” is a short film screening event, showing films from multiple cultures which all aim to reflect this idea. The event will be running simultaneously at SuperDeluxe in Japan, Tokyo.
“Rudderless” by Igor and Ivan Buharov portrays a self-analysis of
a person living under a minority status in former Yugoslavia in
the early 1970s with an absurd touch. “Flowers of Evil” by
Szabolcs Tolnai is a dark comedy dealing with privatisation in
Southeastern Europe, shot at an abandoned factory building.
Daisy Dickinson and Julia Laird travelled to the remote mountains
and islands of Japan and shot “Soramimi” to capture the rhythms
of the forest and create a piece of ritualistic occurrence. “Horizon” by Daniel Szandter, documents the moment when Junya Ishii danced impulsively at the Eurasian Steppe, Puszta.
Alongside the film screenings, there will be a live audio/visual
performance from Koichi Yamanoha (Grimm Grimm) & visual
artist Daisy Dickinson.
