The Depths

2010 / 121min / DCP

DIRECTOR: RYûSUKE HAMAGUCHI

Just as the action in Asako I & II is set in motion by a visit to a show of Shigeo Gocho’s photography at the National Museum of Art in Osaka, Hamaguchi’s second feature shows that the filmmaker’s fascination with the uncanny power of the still image is nothing new. When Korean photographer Kim Min-Jun decides to begin a creative collaboration with queer Japanese hotel employee Hoshi Ishida, the boundaries of their relationship decidedly begin to blur, prompting both to look toward their photographs for a clarity that life denies them.

Screening as a part of the Ryūsuke Hamaguchi series, in conjunction with the release of his latest film ASAKO I & II.
