Watch: :kogonada on the Way of Ozu

Filmmaker and video essayist :kogonada — one of Filmmaker‘s 25 New Faces of 2014 — has a new piece up that revisits one of his continuing inspirations: Yasujiro Ozu. As has been the case in previous pieces, Kogonada employs split screen to identify formal patterns and correspondences across Ozu’s work as well as to create a new work softly pulsing with allied rhythms and gentle background audio.

By the way, Kogonada has a Tiny Letter — “Notes, inquiries, conversations, and projects in pursuit of Ozu, the aftertaste of time, the cinema of mu, and the somethingness of nothingness in this our 21st century.” You can subscribe here.
