Makino Takashi and Rei Hayama film screenings in London

The two founding members of Tokyo film collective [+] Makino Takashi and Rei Hayama screen work at London’s Close-Up Cinema

Close-Up and OtherFilms have curated a night of screenings by the founding members of Tokyo film collective [+], Makino Takashi and Rei Hayama. Promising a night of “hallucinatory distortions evoking chaos and patterns, nature and organic forms”, the programme includes Takashi's 2014 production Phantom Nebula – featuring a live soundtrack performed by Takashi himself – and three Hayama shorts, Inaudible Footsteps, Reportage! and Some Smallness Coming From Land (all made in 2014). A Q&A with both film makers will follow the screenings. Takashi has previously collaborated with musicians and artists like Jim O’Rourke, Colleen, Chris Corsano, Lawrence English and Floris Vanhoof. To read more about him, see Nick Cain’s feature in The Wire 362. Hayama’s soundtrack to her film Kodomo Ga Mushi No Shigai Wo Umeni Iku (translating as A Child Goes Burying Dead Insects) was released in 2013 by Ultra Eczema.
The films will be shown on 25 November at Close-Up Cinema, London. Tickets are limited to 40 persons. More information can be found here.
