Takehiro ITOMovie [MORE] (113min / 16:9 / stereo / color)

We will screen “MORE”, the thesis project film of Tokyo University of the Arts, which is directed by Takehiro ITO and shot partly in blanclass. This story centers round the main characters of three girls in their late twenties while depicting the relationships between men and women in the city, and provides the audience the sense of a little journey as each character grows up. On behalf of the film production, I kept a short note as below.
“We live in an isolated island. We find ourselves involved in a story when someone tells it in another island. In order to find ourselves, we departure the island and sail the sea at the risk of our lives. Someday, our journey brings us to film. However, it is just a transient goal.”
We would like to have this opportunity to think about the possibility and impossibility of spending our lives as characters of a story.
