Never a Foot Too Far, Even

(Daïchi Saïto, 2012, 14 min)

Appropriating a brief fragment from an old Kung Fu movie, Never a Foot Too Far, Even is an action movie without action. The film focuses on an obscure figure finding himself in a forest path, caught between perpetual motion and stasis. The painterly images fluctuate in the complex shifting of color and texture, phasing in and out through a polymetric structure. It is a perceptual journey without destination in the turning sphere of ever-changing image and sound, whose beginning and end move in parallel towards a fleeting point of convergence. With original sound composition by Malcolm Goldstein.
