Takahiko Iimura

Filmmakers (1969) DVD NTSC, VHS NTSC, color, 30 min

Genre: Experimental

This is a film portrait of filmmakers whom I was most interested in at the time; Stan Brakhage, Stan Vanderbeek, Jack Smith, Jonas Mekas, Andy Warhol, and Takahiko Iimura, shot during my first visit in U. S. A., 1966-1968, and the n completed in Japan, 1969 with "comments" literally pointing out in words w hat I see in the picture at the moment (like an English lesson). Each filmmaker's part is about 5 minutes (200 feet) (except Iimura, 50 feet) without editing but in camera, most is shot without looking through the viewfinder. A part of Jonas Mekas is shot by himself and Akiko Iimura. Intentionally the film "borrowed" the technique of the filmmaker in his part (ex. frame-by frame shot at the part of Jonas Mekas as he has often employed it in his film). Collection of Anthology Film Archives, New York. Also available in video from Arthouse, New York
