Shades of Safflower-dyed Celluloid

Benibana no kage iro zome

Directed by Oki Kayako
Japan, 2015
Avant-Garde, Short


An analog feast for the senses that first shows how safflower is grown, harvested and processed, before applying its seeds and dye directly on the Super 8 material with results that aspire to a yellow-tinted version of a David Gatten film-nature meditation.
