Ends in 4 days

The fourth edition of this series will feature video work produced in urban settings. In densely populated urban areas, people’s lives and activities are piled up in multiple layers and continue to change on a daily basis. Now that COVID-19 is restricting people from going out and moving around, the city will be reconsidered, which is supposed to be a place of community where people can work freely, through video work with “City / Action” as the key phrase.
This year, three programs of video work by designers, film directors, and artists will be screened.
*Opening hours will be shortened to 17:00 during the state of emergency in Aichi Prefecture.

Program 1|September 14 (Tuesday) - September 25 (Saturday), 2011
Kota Abe “Graffitillos” (2019/70min.)
Graffiti has become a part of the Brazilian urban landscape. This documentary follows five graffitillos (graffiti artists) as they travel through four Brazilian cities. The film reexamines the relationship between the “individual” and the “city” through street culture.

Program 2|September 28 (Tuesday) - October 9 (Saturday), 2011
Takehiro Sakai, “Minato on the Right, Heiwa on the left” (2017 / 38 min.)
A disaster prevention science fiction fantasy set in the Nagoya Port area, this story intersects memories of the 1959 Ise Bay typhoon with the present, creating opportunities to think about the city, natural disasters, and environmental issues, along with real landscapes and characters.

Program 3|October 12 (Tue) - October 23 (Sat), 2011
Hyslom Film Screening
