Kazuhiro Soda: Making Images Speak

The Flicker Kazuhiro Soda

Film index A to Z

Soda concludes his series of New York stories with this captivating short that exposes a young photographer’s torments. Fascinated by a meeting with a blind man in the street, he takes several photos of the man’s face. Once developed, the pictures reveal a disturbing moment. In this film, built on an essayistic approach to direction, the filmmaker is already considering the implications of the gaze, the act of capturing images and the artist’s relationship with the subject.

Presented in collaboration with the Japan Foundation, la Chaire René Malo, the Concordia University’s Studio Arts Department Visiting Artist’s Speaker’s Series Conversations in Contemporary Art and the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema - Concordia University
