Film letters between Naomi Kawase and Isaki Lacuesta
In between days
Isaki Lacuesta and Naomi Kawase briefly met at the Las Palmas Film Festival. To better know each other, to discuss their relation with film, with the images, and with the body, they sent each other filmed letters for a year.
Each of this letters ends up being a film essay, a portrait of their intimity, a reflection on cinema, and on the meaning of filming. It also preserves the trace of a moment, an encounter, a time shared through film itself.
