A remastered anthology of Japanese artist Jun Kurosawa’s short films.
His films constantly long for something, and simultaneously pursue a primitive desire of things. Kurosawa employs a harsh cinematic style, with an interest in humanity's dangerous relationships with technology.
Reflected light of water’s surface and sunlight that penetrates glass, the shadow of the blue sky and things. In the darkness of a theater space, the fixed light on a film becomes various modes through tungsten light.
Selected experimental works by Jun Kurosawa that one would be attracted by the mystique and beauty of a film.
