The Taste of Tangerines (Part 1)

16 mm transferred to digital, colour, Japanese spoken, Dutch/English subtitles, 2019, 10’34”.

After ten years apart a grandmother shares her memories with her grandson of Ocho (Yutakamachiocho) a small port on the NW coast of Osaki Shimojima in the Aki Nada chain of islands in the Seto Inland Sea. The film is both an account of the past, as an impression of her daily life. Alternating word and image fragments the film slowly unfold and (re)constructs memories and stories. A search for the present and the past.
