The Black & Light Series: Naoyuki Tsuji


The films of Japanese director Naoyuki Tsuji can be seen like dreams: in an altered state of wakefulness. His particular “additive” technique—pencil and charcoal drawings over existing outlines, revealing what he calls the afterimage—presents to the spectator’s astounded eyes a disturbing organic cosmogony, childlike in appearance, comprising series of tableaux vivants made up of births, plagues, duels, heavenly creatures and mutations. A primitive, artisan garden of delights, sustained by minimalist, hypnotic soundtracks. [Screening in 16 mm]
