Frames: Tomonari Nishikawa's 16-18-4 (2008)


Tomonari Nishikawa, Japan, 2008, 3 min, 35mm color, silent

Synopsis: This film was shot with a still camera with 16 lenses, which takes a series of 16 pictures within 1.5 seconds, fitting onto two normal frame areas.

The film shows the sense of the event at Tokyo Racecourse, when it was holding the biggest race of the year, Japanese Derby (Tokyo Yushun). The excitement of each race lasts two minutes and 30 seconds.” — Tomonari Nishikawa
