"Tokyo-Ebisu" in Pittsburgh, October 5 and 6.

The Melwood Screening Room in Oakland (map) will be showing the Ann Arbor Film Festival tour for free on Friday, October 5, and Saturday, October 6. One Japanese short film is part of "Program B", which starts on Friday at 9:15 pm and Saturday at 7:30 pm. "Tokyo-Ebisu" is a 10-minute film by Tomonari Nishikawa that, in his words,
shows the views from the platforms of 10 stations in Yamanote Line, from Tokyo Station to Ebisu Station clockwise. The in-camera visual effects and the layered soundtrack may exaggerate the sense of the actual locations, while suggesting the equipments that were used for capturing the audio and visual.
