UTAGAWA Keiko / 1993 / 8mm / 36min.
One day a girl who imagines her lover is swimming in the water inside her ear suddenly has an idea and takes action. She visits the health teacher at the high school from which she graduated and brings up her concerns about her own body, then goes to an ear, nose and throat doctor for a consultation about her ear that lets in water too easily. The female filmmaker herself appears in this semi-documentary in which she sets out to clarify the confusion inside herself with a movie camera as her tool. (From the 1994 IFF catalogue)
