    Taste of Emptiness

    i don't want anything from you.
    you can be anybody, however, whenever,
    i just want you to be alive.

    a sorrowful film of a girl coping with an eating disorder,
    where she has to deal with the struggle of going through
    her illness alone. this work delicately illustrates how a
    sensitive adolescent girl begins to feel the anxiety and
    emptiness that comes from the suffocation of the distance
    from her family and friends. you can see that she wants

    Looking for an Angel

    i lost everything i cared for.
    it's always been like that.

    innovatively shot with rough and out-of-focus images,
    dreamy nightly colors, and residual flashback footage;
    intertwined with repressed identity, indelible anxiety, and
    pain. this film has minimal imagery, which i kind of adore
    because you can focus on the reality of the narrative and

    The Works and Days (of Tayoko Shiojiri in the Shiotani Basin)

    the fragmented narrative that depicts the quiet life of the
    ordinary farmers, the reproduction of rural style, and the
    daily lives of an average family. the black screen and

    changed, and i admired that. it's…

    PYRAMID: Kaleidoscope Memories of Destruction

    on the night of bones, a red spider
    lily contemplates it's loneliness.

    a unique and poetic documentary that displays the
    relationship between the history of chichibu and mount
    buko, folk beliefs, gods, destruction, and the national
    beliefs that remain in the region. the entirety of the film
    is utterly dreamy and beautifully shot in 8mm. i could
    never get enough of this film because it was mesmerizing
    in many ways because of the imagery, lively colors,
    dialogue, song lyrics, and unforgettable music.

    a film that i never want to forget, and i hope it remains
    with me for a long time.
