Synopsis

This portrait of Okinawa, a Japanese island formerly home to an American military base, is conceived as a young boy’s daydream-like wanderings, his attention randomly falling on various objects and events. The film thus represents a bold victory of cinematic intuition over method and order. The combination of 16mm black-and-white camera with color images, a soundtrack disconnected from the images, and the blurring of the boundaries between documentary and fiction make this film an enigmatic but fascinating experience.
