Tearing away the fabric of time and space
8 January 2007 | by raymondo1960See all my reviews

Outstanding experimental animated short. First a few words explaining this film's technique. Ito took a series of still photographs in a gymnasium setting up his camera incrementally in a circle. He then took photos of those photos mounted on stands in the same gymnasium (again in a circle) He then photographed these onto film in stop motion. The striking (and somewhat unnerving) effect is that you are flying into an infinite array of photos within photos. When I saw this as part of a program of avant garde Japanese film, one viewer brought their toddler, who immediately began to wail uncontrollably at the vertiginous display. If you ever get a chance to view this, please do, but don't sit too close to the screen or you may get motion sickness!
