The first Marker's journey to Japan was supposed to be the preparation for making a documentary about the 1964 Olympic games. Shortly after his arrival, Marker met a young woman who became his guide in Tokyo. While rambling through the city the director leads both verbal and non-verbal dialogue with Koumiko, and his 16mm view blends together her personality and the rhythm of the capital. Context defined by the traditional Japanese culture plays a major role. Back in France, Marker leads a remote dialogue with her, which defines a specific space-time also typical for his later films.
