FOR REST, 16min., Japan, Experimental
Directed by Shinya Isobe

A feast is laid out on a table nestled among the roots of a tree in a forest. In a 16mm time-lapse the food gradually rots. Watching this time pass, our imagination conjures images of various things, including death, and spins its own tales until eventually, as the table becomes a mound of grass and new shoots begin to grow, while being struck and shaken by the mystical nature of time we come to embrace the rebirth of hope.
