SHUTTER 1971, 16mm, B&W, 30 mins. Music by Keijiro Satoh
"All in all, the variety of effects Shutter creates makes for one of the more interesting of those many works of recent years which have attempted to explore the visual potential of film processes and materials." - Scott MacDonald (Afterimage, April, 1978, N.Y.)
Since the 1960s, Takahiko iimura’s explorations of the moving image have probed the relationship between media, time and language and have strived to redefine the exhibition of cinema as a mode of performance. He has worked closely with the giants of experimental film such as members of the Hi-Red Centre and Fluxus, Yoko Ono, Jonas Mekas, John Cage, Stan Brakhage and Stan Vanderbeek. His uncompromising work, here presented on DVD, bridges boundaries between film and performance art.
