Synopsis:

One week in the extraordinary-ordinary life of Mr. Moriyama, a Japanese art, architecture and music enlightened amateur who lives in one of the most famous contemporary Japanese architecture, the Moriyama house, built in Tokyo in 2005 by Pritzker Prize winner Ryue Nishizawa (SANAA). Introduced in the intimacy of this experimental microcosm which redefines completely the common sense of domestic life, Ila Bêka recounts in a very spontaneous and personal way the unique personality of the owner: a urban hermit living in a small archipelago of peace and contemplation in the heart of Tokyo. From noise music to experimental movies, the film let us enter into the ramification of the Mr. Moriyama’s free spirit. Moriyama-San, the first film about noise music, acrobatic reading, silent movies, fireworks and Japanese architecture!

Lido

Angela Elvira Bruce, UK, 2019, 30′

Synopsis:

LIDO is a sensory moving portrait located at the Parliament Hill Lido on Hampstead Heath in London. It celebrates the art deco architecture of a much-loved public space. LIDO appears as an observational, atmospheric and textured piece with considered framing which mirrors the rectangular shape of the building. The work creates space to reflect on the relationship between water, Nature and the human-constructed brick and metal materiality of the Lido as well as the bodies that pass through its space.
