Purpose of the residency

We would like to make a film about Shibuya gals freely inspired from Sei Shonagon's Pillow Book. We will ask the girls a series of questions taken from the lists of "things" in the novel. We'll also make images of the neighborhood of Shibuya, mixing super8 and video formats.

Plan during the residency

We'll be filming with long time collaborator Claire Mathon, director of photography and an assistant to translate the answer and help us communicate with the persons we'll meet. We will make a series of interviews indoors (probably at TWS) and shots from the streets of Tokyo, particularly in Shibuya.
