Program Note
This is a 2012 work by ‘Momo Matsuri’, a production/screening group of young Japanese female directors. The film tells us a familiar story in which an adolescent boy, filled with curiosity about sex, has a secret fantasy but ultimately has his expectations betrayed, with the film sleekly portraying this process. The group directed a bubbly and smooth short film with a sophisticated image, rhythmical editing and camera work, and the well-directed performance of four vivid boy characters. Moreover, both the framing between indoor and outdoor and the sense of creating a film from the characters’ movements are outstanding. [HWANG Miyojo]
