Introduction/序論 Again, it is time to celebrate! At the Inca Imperial International Film Festival Masakuza Kaneko’s The Albino’s Tree (2016) received the award for Best Photography and, even better, won the award for the Best Feature Film. While you can read in our review what’s so wonderful about this beautiful nuanced narrative, we also asked Masakuza Kaneko…
“Suenaga shows an amazing aptitude to blend genres and to stage his humanistic vision in a surprising and unconventional way.”
“Even now, on the occasion of guiding the performances of actors, I occasionally show this movie as prime reference.”
“One wonders how on earth it is possible that Inoue has not yet received a chance to craft a full-length feature.”
It is his beautiful use of movement within shots and his exquisite use of interior geometry that underlines his compositional talent.
“The rather intriguing atmospheric blend of music and imagery shows Artegg-Yumi’s artistic ability and promise to craft narratives that are uniquely hers. “
