Close-Up and OtherFilm present a series of films by experimental filmmakers Makino Takashi and Rei Hayama. The films of Takashi and Hayama, two founding members of the Tokyo film collective [+], are hallucinatory distortions evoking chaos and patterns, nature and organic forms, filtered through an undulating macro and micro impasto view. Takashi’s performative films use points of threshold to push the viewer into beautifully overwhelming transcendent states – where visual and sonic noise engulf senses and imagination. Hayama’s films make gentle use of available resources – soil and insects become her abstract muses, and hand cranked celluloid film processed in coffee are subtle throw backs to harmonious ways of being.
