Kahori HIGASHI 東かほり

Melting Sounds

Nippon Visions   ½ 

In her late grandmother’s garden, Koto meets an old man who lives there in a cardboard house and records everyday sounds on tape. He then buries the tapes in the ground. The two share an unusually sonorous winter. Kahori HIGASHI’s directorial debut impresses with musician xiangyu in the leading role, its relaxed narrative style and a meditative soundtrack.
