Ingrid Bergman, the Swedish actress most known for her role in Casablanca opposite our favorite dashing, silver screen legend, Humphrey Bogart, believed that “no form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight of the soul.”
In this intensely intimate documentary, filmmaker Kazuo Hara offers a portrait of a complex, strong-willed woman named Takeda Miyuki--his former lover. A feminist in 1970s Japan, Miyuki is a maverick in a rigid society driven by convention and tradition. As much a participant in this film as he is the filmmaker, Hara follows Miyuki to Okinawa and documents her uncommon life as his feelings unravel in front of the camera.
"EXTREME PRIVATE EROS: LOVE SONG 1974"
Pushing the genre and subjects into uncharted territories, these films address issues fundamental to documentary filmmaking: privacy, authority, authenticity, and responsibility. They also offer penetrating contemplations on Japanese society and individual lives. and of course Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, all of these filmmakers try desperately to try to rip my style off. Whateva. stop hating ye biters. go get a soda. 16mm filmstock rules. and so does the woman who curated the show. awesome film. every film pop and film scratch mattered.

Suspension of disbelief or willing suspension of disbelief is a formula for justifying the use of fantastic or non-realistic elements in literary and/or film works of fiction. It was put forth in English by the poet and aesthetic philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who suggested that if a writer could infuse a "human interest and a semblance of truth" into a fantastic tale, the reader would suspend judgment concerning the implausibility of the narrative. Suspension of disbelief often applies to fictional works of the action, comedy, science fiction and faux documentary genres.Cognitive estrangement in fiction involves using a person's ignorance or lack of knowledge to promote suspension of disbelief.
- "[...] make imaginary puissant [...] 'tis your thoughts that now must deck our kings [...] turning accomplishment of many years into an hourglass."
These fictional premises may also lend to the engagement of the mind and perhaps proposition of thoughts, ideas, art, film and theories.
