Fading the Past
'So Long, Yesterday' Movie Festival _
Among the important contemporary Japanese filmmakers, Shunji Iwai is one of the most influential masters and my favorite. His work always conjures up images of the coming-of-age experience of Japanese youth through his dexterity in shooting.
He translates the bittersweetness of the teenage years and how young people learn to grow up in the passage to adulthood into a series of unf orgettable scenes.
In this project, many multi-exposed effects have been utilized to mimic the overlapping of memories from different individuals.
