SHASHIN NO MA
The word 間 (ma) in Japanese expresses the awareness of interval / space, not in the traditional notion of a closed three-dimensional entity, but rather as form and non-form mediated by amplified senses. These are confronted by an experimental film that explores the notion that a film’s content is the cinematic equivalent of reality.
"SHASHIN NO MA, literally means MA(間) of photograph. It is an homage to my father, all the fathers who film their children and history of amateur cinema." T. Maruyama
