10 Nights' Dreams

Japan, (MIFF 2005, experimental)

Director: Keiichi Tanaami, Aihara Nobuhiro

MIFF has brought together the amazing and imaginative works by Image Forum, Japan. Exclusive to MIFF, these short films are at the epicentre of experimental filmmaking in a range of styles. [The Trains] (Hirata Takahiro, 8 mins) is a rhythmic rendition of [Kaerunoouta] (Frog song), created by the passing of trains. [Grainy Days] (Oki Chieko, 19 mins) is the story of a young girl working in a soybean factory, wishing she could fly. Using freeze-frames and dissolves, [Z Reactor] (Goshima Kazuhiro, 11 mins) rebuilds an image of an ever-growing Tokyo. A representation of the two directors' dreams, [10 Nights' Dreams] (Tanaami Keiichi and Aihara Nobuhiro, 8 mins) is based on themes of drunkenness and nighttime. [Textism] (Hirabayashi Isamu, 11 mins) is a wry take on three stories in the artist's memento mori. The beautifully crafted [Blooming Ink Tale] (Onitsuka Kentaro, 10 mins) is created by painstakingly re-painting a white room, which tells the story of lovers' fantasies in human prints.
