Projekcija: Shozin Fukui – Rubber’s Lover (1996)

U petak 24. veljače s pocetkom u 20.30 h možete prisustvovati zaključnoj projekciji iz trotjednog ciklusa Japanese Cyberpunk Cinema. Radi se o filmu Rubber’s Lover (1996) redatelja Shozin Fukuia. Redatelj je ovaj tenzični crno – bijeli uradak izveo kao impresivnu nisku sfumatoznih, psihološki alarmantnih vizualizacija u efektnom interpoliranju sa surovim grafičkim prikazima nasilja koje proizlazi iz prethodno naglašene “patologije slike”. Fukui je zahvaljujući ovoj kultnoj produkciji u japansku cyberpunk kinematografiju efektno uveo elemente industrial noira – hladnoću urbane izolacije, eksploatacijsku estetiku i kinetičku energiju samog filmskog medija koju dodatno naglašava opori metallic soundtrack.  Projekcije petkom u Kino klubu su edukativnog karaktera, organizirane za članove i sve koji žele prisustvovati. Ulaz je besplatan, svi su dobrodošli…

 

 

Shozin Fukui – Rubber’s Lover (1996)

Originally a native of Hyogo Prefecture in Kansai, Fukui moved to Tokyo in the 1980s and quickly got involved with the punk underground movie scene there. In 1988, Fukui worked on Shinya Tsukamoto’s Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989), which quickly became the quintessential Japanese cyberpunk film – the melding of man and machine or rather, man and scrap iron, a profoundly body-oriented sci-fi nightmare. But unlike Tsukamoto, who kept on exploring the body in his following films, Fukui went for the even more dangerous matter – the grey matter. Already parallel to his involvement in Tetsuo, he shot a fairly disturbing 33-minute piece called Caterpillar (1988). But it was his debut feature Pinocchio √ 964 (1991) that made Fukui’s name. If Pinocchio was already a nightmare full of mind-blowing scenes, Fukui’s follow-up Rubber’s Lover (1996) added the element of claustrophobia. Rubber’s Lover details a clandestine group of scientists who conduct psychic experiments on human guinea pigs they take from the streets. Using brain-altering drugs, sensory deprivation and computer interfaces, they subject their patients to gruesome scientific tortures that often end in brutal death. After continued failure, they pursue one last project – which yields dangerous results.

(Besides cinema, Fukui also runs a tiny bar named Kemuri in Tokyo’s Higashi Nakano neighborhood.)

Japanese Cyberpunk Cinema

Japanese Cyberpunk is a genre of underground film produced in Japan starting in the 1980s. It bears some resemblance to the high-tech and scientific Cyberpunk as understood in the West, however differs in its representation of industrial and metallic imagery and an incomprehensible narrative. Japanese Cyberpunk generally involves the characters, especially the protagonist, going through monstrous, incomprehensible metamorphoses in an industrial setting. Many of these films have scenes that fall into the experimental film genre; they often involve purely abstract or visual sequences that may or may not relate to the characters and plot. Recurring themes include: mutation, technology, dehumanization, repression and sexual deviance. (wikipedia)…
