Memories of Origin: HIROSHI SUGIMOTO

This documentary follows 200 days in life of the contemporary artist Hiroshi Sugimoto.

Hiroshi Sugimoto is a leading presence in the world of modern art. He has taken the medium of photography and perceiving it as a form of conceptual art,has extended the barriers of expression. He is the winner of many prestigious awards and his photographs are sold for millions of yen at overseas auctions.

KOCHUU: Japanese Architecture/Influence and Origin

KOCHUU is a visually stunning film about modern Japanese architecture, its roots in the Japanese tradition, and its impact on the Nordic building tradition. Winding its way through visions of the future and traditional concepts, nature and concrete, gardens and high-tech spaces, the film explains how contemporary Japanese architects strive to unite the ways of modern man with the old philosophies in astounding constructions.
