Cyber Kawachi is an interactive, artistic documentary based on the sounds of Kawachi (Japan) and its epic story singers. Cyber Kawachi expresses the hidden power of the Kawachi suburbs, overflown by airplanes, darkened by the highways and the smoke of old factories, distorted by a series of high-tech slums, but brutally animated by liminal characters; the trivial, local men and women of Kawachi. They insist on singing against the wind in winter, thus creating these cracked voices of Kawachi, symbolizing quarrels, alcohol and a life outside the society.
A Co-production with The Banff Center for the Arts, Canada, 1997
