Disturbed Ecologies

Too Close Too Far

16mm, sound/color, 21min. 21sec., Japan 2020

Too Close, Too Far is a gathering of moments of a multispecies household in Japan. Beyond the linearity of a narrative, the camera follows passivities and activities of this micro ecology. Overshadowed by the death of one, and the sickness of another inhabitant, the film images weave themselves into the rhythm of the vital instability of the everyday—whereas the sound connects to us the life of the wider surrounding.
