Double Layered Town / Making a Song to Replace Our Positions


(Komori Haruka + Seo Natsumi, 2019, 79 minutes)

Set in Rikuzentakata, Iwate, Japan, in the year 2031, Double Layered Town is a story by Seo Natsumi, planting seeds for new folktales born in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. The town that once stood and the one built after the completion of land elevation work─four travelers who know neither head for Rikuzentakata in 2018, listen to what the local people have to say, hold repeated dialogues and recite stories. The travelers find their own speaking voice through cycles of listening, reporting, and retelling. This is a record of a site where a small “succession” is initiated, captured with a delicate touch by filmmaker Komori Haruka.

Haruka Komori + Natsumi Seo has been working as an art unit composed of videographer Komori and painter/writer Seo. They started their collaboration in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake. In 2012, they moved to Rikuzentakata in Iwate prefecture and have been working with the theme of documenting the local people’s narratives, daily lives and scenery of the area. In 2015 they established the organization NOOK with others active in Tohoku, in order to hand over the memories and documentations through art expressions.

Suitable for audience 13 years of age and above

Films are with English, Indonesian, Japanese, and Thai subtitles.

The Q&A will be in Japanese with English, Indonesian, and Thai interpreters.
