Premiere: ‘On Generation and Corruption’

Makino Takashi

2017 | DCP | 26min Soundtrack by post-classical composer Jim O’Rourke (Sonic Youth, Steamroom Series)

Borrowing its title from a treatise by Aristotle, the latest film by Makino Takashi is an abstract work that finds its drive in the clash between light and darkness. Entirely composed of superimposed images of Tokyo’s landscape and water sites, the film takes its rhythm from the cycles of repetition that are the pillars of life and civilisation. As light emerges from the chaos, Jim O’Rourke’s ambient drone sets the tone for what is to come. (International Film Festival Rotterdam 2017)
