SHORT CUTS V: RESILIENT STRUCTURES
FEBRUARY 25 2010 | 6PM | $10
NORTHWEST FILM CENTER'S WHITSELL AUDITORIUM | 1219 SW PARK AVE]
-PRESENTED WITH THE NORTHWEST FILM CENTER
the 2010 Portland International Film Festival Cinema Project brings a
selection of contemporary film and video from Japan, Malaysia, and
Taiwan. Focusing on natural and man-made structures and the spaces
in-between, each of these works reveals a variety of dynamic relations
from frame to space and from history to environment. Daichi Saito’s
entirely hand-processed film Trees of Syntax, Leaves of Axis
examines the natural language of a familiar Canadian landscape while
Chris Chong Chan Fui’s modernist exchange on public and private space
in Block B presents a surprisingly telling view of an apartment block in Kuala Lumpur. From Tomonari Nishikawa is Lumphini 2552,
black-and-white images of plants and trees shot using a 35mm still
camera at Bangkok’s Lumphini Park. The result is a surprisingly
emotional construction of rhythm and movement. And from Shiho Kano's Shinonome Omogo Ishizuchi is a transcendental travelogue inspired by filmmaker Mansaku Itami. Finally, Taiwanese filmmaker Chen Chieh-Jen’s Empire's Borders I examines the process that Taiwanese citizens endure when applying for a United States visa.
