"The essential characteristic of the image is its presentness."
Alain Robbe-Grillet

Details from a portrait of Akira Naka, through the otherness of image and speech; broken up memory, fragmented time, reminiscences of places, moments, faces and bodies, during a back-and-forth between the recollections of a child and the aspirations of a man in his fifties...

Screened at the 5th edition of the Festival du Film de Fesses, Paris (2018).

Special premiere at Uplink Factory, Tokyo, on April 10, 2016.
