Kohei SENGEN 仙元浩平

Song Of A Dying Summer

Nippon Visions   ½ 

Natsu spends a last summer alongside his friends, Aki, Fuyu and Haru, while writing a stage play to commemorate their time together. Shot entirely on 8mm film, Kohei SENGEN’s feature-length debut, with its grainy images steeped in muted colors, creates an almost dreamlike atmosphere, conveying the melancholy of growing up – and growing apart.
