Thoughts on Filmmaking

Followed by a talk with

Towards A Common Tenderness
Kaori Oda, Japan 2017, 63 min.

Thus A Noise Speaks 
Kaori Oda, Japan 2010, 38 min.

For Kaori Oda, filmmaking is a medium to reflect upon the world around her, and the camera allows her to capture her observations. Towards A Common Tenderness and Thus A Noise Speaks contemplate what it means to be a filmmaker. The first is a meditation about the medium itself and the filmmaker’s sense of alienation while wandering in Bosnia Herzegovina, while the latter is a courageous intervention in her family relations that takes the audience into the mind of a queer filmmaker who is, first and foremost, a human.
