Set in 16th century Japan, amidst the pandemonium of civil war, potter Genjūrō (Mori Masayuki) and samurai-aspirant Tobei (Ozawa Sakae) set out with their wives in search of wealth and military glory respectively. Two parallel tales ensue when the men are lured from their wives: Genjūrō by the ghostly charm of Lady Wakasa (Kyo Machiko); Tobei by the dream of military glory.

Nicolas Provost’s work studies the similarities between the narrative conventions of movies and the recording of the everyday, and looks for the cinematic everywhere but the cinema. In his Plot Point Trilogy, three short videos created over six years, Provost filmed iconic public spaces with a hidden camera, weaving the footage into dramatic arcs using narrative editing devices. Plot Point (2007) dramatizes the NYPD’s movements in Times Square. Stardust (2010) transforms the ugly foyers of Las Vegas into a crime story featuring real Hollywood stars. And Tokyo Giants (2012) follows an actor playing a serial killer through the Japanese metropolis [Images courtesy of Tim Van Laere Gallery, Antwerp, Belgium].
