Jo Ha Kyu (2012)

The essential concept of narrative structure in traditional Japanese temporal arts, jo-ha-kyû, is loosely interpreted against the filmmaker’s subjective experience of Tokyo shortly after the 2011 Japanese earthquake.

In a way, the piece is about the conflict and co-existence of the concrete and abstract worlds, between objective observances and subjective experience, narrative and non-narrative, documentary and fiction.

Single channel video, 11:23, HD, color, sound
