MORI Fumitake / 1998 / 8mm / color / 24min.
A white clock tower stands out against the blue sky. The history you hold is old and great. From the window of a train and the roof of a building, the camera sets its aim at the clock tower, with its guardian entity-like existence for the filmmaker. In this rite of conquest, the filmmaker infiltrates the closed-off tower, becomes one with the camera and expresses his interior impulses towards this infinitely greater existence. (From the 1999 IFF catalogue)
