A 1926 lost Japanese Modernism silent film regarding madness and its' reality brought to life with new score by visual artist and AACM composer Renee' Baker
Performed by Chicago/Berlin collaboration of
CHICAGO MODERN ORCHESTRA PROJECT
PEK CONTEMPORARY PROJECT Berlin
A stunning invocation of the world as viewed by the mentally ill, within minutes, as the rapid montage of the opening storm sequences dissolves into the surrealistic fantasy of the sailor's wife dressed in an exotic costume dancing in front of an art-deco inspired backdrop featuring a large spinning ball flanked by ornate fountains.
A Page of Madness bowls you over with a barrage of startling images utilising every technique known to filmmakers of the time. Even now, Kinugasa's film seems as fresh as a daisy and when seen on the big screen, as eye-popping an experience as anything you've ever seen.
