Okinawan Dream Show

Synopsis

With childhood friend OTA Kazuhito (Tarugani) as his sound man, TAKAMINE Go captures on 8mm film the everyday landscape of Okinawa right after the reversion to Japan, and the scent of death from his parents’ haunting memories of the Battle of Okinawa. Inspired by Jonas MEKAS’s Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania (1972), the non-narrative form and intermittent slow motion make Okinawan Dream Show a visual poetry beyond a déjà vu.
