​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The second programme pays attention to a range of known and less well-known Japanese filmmakers and aims to look into different filmic experimentation forms from the 60s till the 80s. In a time when sex, violence and politics takes a prominent role in cinema, art and photography in Japan as well in the rest of the world, this programme allows these topics to figure as ghosts in the background, when it examines the opportunities of cinematic representation, perception, linear temporality, repetition, and sensory overload. Following different methods (optical printing, re-filming, loops, superimposition), these films bring out how the deconstruction of a given original material can produce unexpected constellations and open the ground to the formulation of new film structures.
