THOU’LT LOOK BACK NO MORE;NEVER,NEVER,NEVER,NEVER,NEVER.
Japan, 2021, 90′
A woman walks along the beach. She is surrounded by film crews. A camera captures her. She is an actress. She plays various roles by wearing her different masks one by one. She brings them to life as if she were on imaginary journeys.
Then, what is her real face under those masks like? Where is she actually hidden? Her depressed profile, waiting for her boyfriend in the long afternoon. Her innocent face on her affable friend. Her eyes with fear at security cameras. Or, her appearance on the screen… She exists in all of us, but then she doesn’t at the same time. When the clear identity of “I” becomes unstable, the reality falls apart and it is rebuilt as a fiction through a camera lens.
Thus, a film has been made.
born in Japan in 1980.
His experience of watching movies such as “Empire of the ants” and “Race of the devil” on TV during his childhood has been a big impact on his filmmaking up to the present. He was inspired by “LePetit Soldat”(The Little Soldier) when he watched it at a theater by chance in the end of his teenage era. Since then, movies have been the center of his life and he naturally became to aspire to be a filmmaker. He went to a film school after he moved to Tokyo, however, he learned how to make movies mainly by watching movies. While he started making independent films, he also kept writing his own scripts. In 2021, he has completed making his first feature film “Thou’lt look back no more never never never never never.”
