25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Yoshiki Nishimura
original title: Dear Daisy,
running time: 10 min.
This minimalistic, computer-animated film tells a story of love and betrayal between man and technology, acting as a metaphor for the terrifying infiltration of smart machines in our increasingly digitised society. Dark visuals, ambient noises, and an alienated narrative give the impression of a cyberpunk aesthetic.
"When smashing the computer into pieces, I struggled with my conscience; ‘Am I a brutal murderer?’ The bizarre sensation I had experienced led me to make this film." Y. Nishimura
