Enlightenment stems from an understanding of divine order, which is the flow of the cosmos.
This edition attempts to capture the pulse of Japanese life, following a cosmological and sonic clue.
Using archival material of soldiers detecting the weather/enemy, I fictionalized a soldier looking into the distance with binoculars,travelling between the past and the future, poetically meditating on youth, eternity, the politics of idealism/communism, justice yet to come and lovers yet to meet, trying to break through the cruelty and despair of war and life.

Moving Images and Music
- the initial impulse of any film project comes from the structures of contemporary music, which do not rely on melodies, but on rhythm.
- Cornelius Cardew - Scratch Orchestra
- Luke Fowler
- the relationship between music, sound and image
- My search, which seems in a certain way historical, is not approached from a historiographical perspective, but is part of the voices that are currently in the atmosphere, voices that resonate with me as a present, not as a tradition.
- The methodology with which I approach the subject of the moving image has to do with a rather intuitive relationship with the structure of music and sound.
- I think in terms of harmonics and counterpoint, with a script that is perhaps more of a musical type and is not based on the logic of cause-effect or temporality-spatiality; it is more abstract and is related to ideas close to music theory.
- I am interested in thinking about how the present acts in the face of these historical gazes, the gaze is always from the present and thinks about the present. There is a historical enquiry in the search for matter on that lost film, which becomes image and which becomes sound.
- when I make a film, the atmosphere starts from the music and then I find different possibilities of editing the material.
- From the reflection on the body that appears in the performance as a gesture that retakes the physical body as an object of work, we should consider the lack of knowledge we have about what a body is, where it begins, where it ends. So, what is the question of individuality? I think it is almost ridiculous to speak, for example, of auteur cinema when cinema is a collective fact, however handcrafted and personal it may be. One as an individual is completely influenced by different situations, aesthetics, people, etcetera. We are collective beings.
- the relationship of historical moments as an instantaneous connection in time.
