It looks like a Japanese film

Program: Sehnsucht 20/21: It looks like a Japanese Film & Megacities

With boundless curiosity and energy, Glawogger’s film Megacities interweaves “12 stories of survival” from the world’s biggest metropolises— Mumbai and Mexico City, Moscow and New York—, creating an overwhelming sensual experience that includes the transgression of boundaries between fiction and non-fiction: Megacities is also mega-cinema. Sasha Pirker’s minimalist short presents a counterpoint to Glawogger’s maximalism: an everyday picture before the catastrophe. 

Director: Sasha Pirker
