I AM THE ONE TO DECIDE YOUR 1 SECOND MIYAKAWA Shin’ichi
Two works that won awards in 2002. Both have “family” as their theme. The attempt to make a film in order to change unavoidable family relationships seen in HOME is quite sad but also a new approach; rather than shooting a family for the sake of a film, the camera intervenes for the sake of the family (in this case it is a shield rather than a weapon). The formal rotating shots of Miyakawa’s work that expands the style of personal filmmaking devoted to staying within a single frame of film are also worthy of notice.
