TOKYO IS DREAMING is “a rich and evocative tableau of life in the Japanese capital, set to a beguiling score by Calexico’s John Convertino. Taiwanese-born artist filmmaker Peter Chang’s portrait of the bustling metropolis offers a modern-day take on the City Symphonies that flourished in early 20th Century cinema with films such as ‘Man with a Movie Camera’. Like those earlier opuses, ‘Tokyo is Dreaming’ uses the camera to observe the beating heart(s) of urban life – work, travel, leisure but also alienation and homelessness – subtly drawing a map of the city in which quiet contemplation and frenetic activity overlap. The absence of dialogue, subtitles or voice-over narration encourages a total submersion in this life of the city – a bewildering and fascinating journey.” The official world premiere is on Saturday Sept 19 at the 2009 Berwick-Upon-Tweed Film & Media Festival in England. Here are links to the trailers… nice work John!
