Spaghetti Code Love (2021) review [Japan Cuts 2021]

“Maruyama’s narrative speaks powerfully to the spectator’s subjectivity – his fears and hopes – and enables his evocation of a glimmer of hope that remains present in this dark depressive modern relational mess to positively impact his audience.”

The Goldfish Dreaming Of The Sea (2021) review [Japan Cuts 2021]

“Ogawa’s thoughtful lyricism that gives the emotionality of the performances their power to touch the spectator and enables her exploration of the difficulty to separate from one’s mother and the need for such separation to happen for subjective growth to resonate so vividly with the audience.” 

Mio On the Shore (2019) review

A great and visually pleasing narrative about the socially embedded nature of the process of coming-into-being-as-subject.

Ito (2021) review [OAFF 2021]

“A charming exploration about the way in which the other allows a drifting subject to moor his desire and find a direction for his subjectivity within the Other.”

Our 30 Minute Sessions (2020) review

A very pleasant narrative that vividly underlines the importance of social bonds for the integration of a subject within the social field as well as the fundamental role the O/other plays in the process of becoming a desiring subject.
