Image X Sound, program one

For 25 years Chicago musician and filmmaker Tatsu Aoki has been forging a modest, meditative cinema that abjures grand statements to focus on the rhythms of daily life and its tiny moments of beauty. Of the five works on this retrospective program, the two longest are rambling, uneven Super-8 affairs that nonetheless offer a fascinating mix of improvisational home movie and more lyrical moments: in Solutions (1991) scenes of Aoki's filmmaking and home life are interrupted by a brief but lovely meditation on a wineglass, and in Landing (1998) static, out-of-focus window views contrast with the varied rhythms of horses walking in a circle. The best film, Local Color 1 (1987), combines distorted street images in multiple superimposition to suggest a lovely and mysterious moving tapestry. 105 min.
