Remembering Every Night

Subete no Yoru wo Omoidasu

64th TIFF: Greek Premiere
What mysteries might unfold from a day in the everyday lives of three women in Tama New Town, the sprawling Tokyo suburb that has strayed far from its ambitious 1960s plan to alleviate the city's housing problem? Yui Kiyohara responds with an ethereal film that navigates the boundaries of cinematic fiction. It captures the pulse of distinct individual trajectories, seemingly disconnected and only tangentially related, to surgically unveil the invisible thread connecting the urban landscape with its human geography. Special mention goes to the organic editing, inherently open to how female individuality chooses to navigate its own context. It is utterly dedicated to capturing the diverse rhythms that only an urban case study like this can genuinely discern.
