Tatsu Aoki has been creating experimental films for more than 30 years. Aoki introduces selections from his lesser-seen works on 16 mm and presents the Chicago premiere of his digital work Pages. Jonathan Chen, on electronics, and Jamie Kempkers, on cello, accompany the screenings, creating a live soundscape and improvised music.
The sum of Aoki’s massive filmography is an abstract visual journey of space and time that creates a singular world of waiting and pursuing. His body of minimalist and structuralist films gives shape to his belief in a spiritual paradise that is serene and simple yet full of change and chance.
