A fascinating film if one is in the right frame of mind to watch it: there is no narration nor notes nor music of any kind; its rather more like a photo essay except that they are moving pictures (and the camera moves very little often not at all). From what I can tell, they are all from Japan, from after the Fukushima tsunami. All sorts of built environments are shown: scientific research sites, schools, playgrounds, homes, offices, stores and many others: I can't think of one sort of place where humans used to be that is excluded.

A big nothing.

There are some startlingly-shot images - unreal-looking shafts of light coming through disintegrating ceilings, a decaying movie theatre whose period seating has retained its vibrant 'seventies colours. The film is extremely placid. Fans of Brian Eno and other minimalist music may enjoy this as a kind of ambient documentary.
