JAPAN

A short Documentary on my first visit to Japan in 2007.

I visited the basic parts of Tokyo and this particular part of town is where I stayed during my trip. This was filmed the last night that I was there because I suddenly realized that I forgot to sightsee here as well as film!

The challenge for me was (and still is): How to present this (and other videos) in a slightly different way than your basic documentary form?

For me, the answer was in the form of a question: How did I see and or feel about Japan when I was there, let alone Japanese culture? Simple as it may sound, it was really hard hard to come up with ideas for this one compared to the others that will follow.

The music is "Enjoy" by Bjork which I felt best described my feeling and somewhat view of this particular area in Tokyo.

Stay tuned for part II
