Naomi KawaseJapan – 2011

The Asuka region is the birthplace of Japan. Here, in ancient times, there were those who fulfilled their lives in the midst of waiting. Modern people, apparently having lost this sense of waiting, seem unable to feel grateful for the present, and cling to the illusion that all things will move constantly forward according to one’s own plan. In ancient times, there were three small mountains that people believed were inhabited by gods. They were Mt. Unebi, Mt. Miminashi, and Mt. Kagu, and they still stand. More

A very special journey: In 1914 Paul Klee visited the South of Tunis.

Kohei OGURIJapan – 2005

The action takes place in a small town near the mountains. The heroine, MACHI, is a high school student, who has yet to find her direction in life. One day, she and her friends start making up a story, which they decide to continue as a kind of relay. One after another, the girls continue the dreamlike tale, which unfolds like a “future history”, invisible to the protagonists. Meanwhile, for the adults of the town things are different. Their “story” is forged from the realities of life, and from their past. The two stories progress side by side, never seeming to cross. More

Russkij kovcheg - Russian Ark

A film shot in on shot with no break. On a winter's day, a small party of men and women arrive by horse-drawn carriage to a minor, side entrance of the Winter Palace. The narrator meets another spectral but visible outsider, "the European", and follows him through numerous rooms of the palace. Each room manifests a different period of Russian history, but the periods are not in chronological order. More

Athina, epistrofi stin Akropoli - Athen

Angelopoulos was born and grew up in Athens. The Athens that starts from the Acropolis and extends to the small Byzantine churches of the old quarter, the remains of the neo-classical homes, the quiet squares, the apartment buildings, the narrow streets, the vehicles, the pedestrians. It is not a city but the stage on which a drama is being played out, as, of course, is the rest of Greece in the films of Angelopoulos. More specifically, a tragedy made up of treasured memories, stories and personal experience. More
