The Better Way Back to the Soil

  • 8'
  • Japan
  • 2017
A minimalist prose poem in cinematographic terms, crafted from nothing but the titles of lost movies: The Man Who Disappeared, Somewhere in Politics, Under Two Flags. A black screen, thereon the titles and production dates: that’s all Hirakawa Youki needs to evoke a lost continent. A reverie supreme.
