The documentary about the noise, bustle, and a lonely man on the street shot impulsively.
Tamaki Shinkan explores 16mm film material. One Record on December seems to contain a virus that affects the image.
Disorientating image consists of fragmentary 16mm shots of large numbers of walking people, printed in reverse. Visible spots and stripes add to the unrest. Slowly, cracks and tears appear, until eventually the emulsion completely flakes off. What remains is blank film, and silence.
