Koukou ~ Dazzle of Surface Movie Poster

Koukou ~ Dazzle of Surface (1986)

Roofs of tin and tile, passing by trains and cars, walls of modern buildings – surfaces of solid objects and those of soft, such as water – sunlight evenly shines on both those surfaces. These lights change into various expressions with the characteristics of the objects they reflect on. By controlling light, Hirata exaggerates the reflecting rays. This act purifies the light itself and is solely an attempt to abstract the world of vision that is formed by the reflecting of radiant energy. The power of the beam is relative to that of the filmmaker's gaze. The rays eventually gather, become a mass, and repeat intense expansion and contraction. At this moment, Hirata, using light as the medium, is facing this world with complete precision.
