Cinéma Concret

Makino Takashi
Japan, Netherlands 2015 / 24’

Bold, provocative, and intriguing are three words that could describe this experimental film by Japanese filmmaker Makino Takashi. His visuals have a hypnotizing power. We follow emerging features, see flashes of light, and observe disruptions in order to perceive a unified image beneath it all. The soundtrack, which is equally important for Takashi, enhances audiences’ sensory experiencing during viewing.
