One week in the extraordinary-ordinary life of Mr. Moriyama, a Japanese art, architecture and music enlightened amateur who lives in one of the most famous contemporary Japanese architecture, the Moriyama house, built in Tokyo in 2005 by Pritzker Prize winner Ryue Nishizawa (SANAA).
Introduced in the intimacy of this experimental microcosm which redefines completely the common sense of domestic life, Ila Bêka recounts in a very spontaneous and personal way the unique personality of the owner: a urban hermit living in a small archipelago of peace and contemplation in the heart of Tokyo. From noise music to experimental movies, the film let us enter into the ramification of the Mr. Moriyama’s free spirit. Moriyama-San (63 min.), the first film about noise music, acrobatic reading, silent movies, fireworks and Japanese architecture.
Moriyama-San will have its world premiere in competion at Docaviv International Film Festival in Tel Aviv and an exhibition version is currently part of the show “The Japanese House” at the Barbican Centre in London.
