Sound Hunting dan Voices from the Waves Shinchimachi

 

Saya tak akan berbicara banyak tentang dua filem dari Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival 2013—Sound Hunting dan Voices from the Waves Shinchimachi—karena yakin bahwa penonton tentunya memiliki pengalaman unik dan mengejutkan dengannya.

Sebagai sebuah surat cinta dan perpisahan pada filem 8mm yang sudah tidak diproduksi lagi di Jepang, Sound Hunting akan ditampilan dalam bentuk 8mm-nya yang original dan sang sutradara Murakami Kenji akan melakukan penayangannya di ARKIPEL. Voices from the Waves Shinchimachi adalah satu dari “Trilogi Tohoku” yang disutradarai secara kolaboratif oleh Sakai Ko dan Hamaguchi Ryusuke pada pasca 11 Maret, 2011. Orang-orang yang tinggal di Shinchimachi, Fukushima, berkomuniasi satu sama lain secara berpasang-pasangan dan berbagi pengalaman dan ingatan-ingatan intimnya kepada kita, penonton: antarteman, suami-isteri, ayah-anak, dan dua sturadara itu juga diwawancarai. Sebuah filem luar biasa dengan pengalaman-pengalaman filemis. Sebagaimana pernyataan sutradara, “Penting untuk menyimpan suara-suara ini untuk 100 tahun yang akan datang”, filem ini akan memuat suara-suara itu bahkan ketika semua telah tiada.

Sound Hunting and Voices from the Waves Shinchimachi

 

I will not say much about the two Japanese films from Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival 2013 — Sound Hunting and Voices from the Waves Shinchimachi – as I am certain that the audience will have their own unique (and surprising) encounters with each film.

A farewell as well as a love letter to the 8mm film that is no longer in production in Japan, Sound Hunting will be shown in its original 8mm film and the director Murakami Kenji will do his own projection in the Arkipel screening. Voices from the Waves Shinchimachi is one of the “Tohoku trilogy” co-directed by Sakai Ko and Hamaguchi Ryusuke made after March 11, 2011. People living in Shinchimachi, Fukushima converse with each other in pairs and share their intimate experiences and memories to us, the audience: between friends, wife and husband, father and son, and the directors are also the interviewees. It is an extraordinary film as well as filmic experience as the directors say “it was important to keep these voices for 100 years in the future” and the film will carry their voices even when we are all gone.
