Zero Dimension / Kato Yoshihiro

Such activities marked a climax in 1970 when they organized the anti-Expo alliance to crush up the Osaka Exposition. While many avant-garde artists gave up confrontation with capitalism and were agitated by the Expo, Zero Dimension continued their “rituals” at many local universities and Expo venues in association with Zenkyoto (A Student-body Struggle Committee, 1968?1969).


The Missing Picture

Today I know that this image must be missing. I was not really looking for it; would it not be obscene and insignificant? So I created it. What I give you today is neither the picture nor the search for a unique image, but the picture of a quest: the quest that cinema allows.


Pea

The “Pea” refers to the spirits living in the forest of Thailand. The spirit Pea sleeping among the trees is not visible to the human adult. In this film, which was shot in the village of Surin in northeastern Thailand, a boy from the village was painted black on his whole body and walked among the adults.


Kim Soo-nam

While witnessing the government’s policy to eradicate shamanism, Kim Soo-nam began to capture with his camera the scenes of shamanism as traditional Korean religion and culture that was disappearing.


DocLab’s Works

Based in Hanoi, DOCLAB is an art center for documentaries, experimental films and videos. Founded in 2009, DOCLAB has been working to take film and its audience back into the realm of the individual. Taking documentaries beyond “objectivities,” Hanoi DOCLAB explores the unknown in-between spaces: between objective observance and subjective experience, fiction and non-fiction, the public and the private.
