Hiraki Sawa tells the story of the enduring memory of the close friend who is the inspiration for his most recent works: delicate, dreamlike landscapes rooted in a world at once imaginary and firmly embedded in reality. His films offer subtle reflections of the notions of time, movement and travel, using a blend of digital manipulation, scissors-and-paste editing, photography, collage, movie-style illusion and various leitmotifs.
