About

"As the title suggests, Models defines the general concerns which characterize Iimura's nonphotographic films. The most important of these concerns is his exploration of the real space and time of film experience. Models presents eight different forms of this exploration, each of which involves a different set of basis variables. A description of the first section of the film will give an idea of Iimura's method and of some of its revelations. All in all, the number of interesting filmic explorations in the eight sections of Models makes it one of Iimura's most impressive films" – Scott MacDonald, Afterimage, April, 1978

    Celebrating Takahiko Iimura

    “From early sixties, though Japanese, Iimura was well known as one of the first generation of the New York Underground … For many years, Japanese experimental film was Takahiko Iimura.” – Malcolm Le Grice, Time Out, London.
