Made as a diptych with Cherry Blossoms, Letter Home is a film letter in which touristic images of the director's trip are digitally distorted, combining the aspirations of both the touristic image hunter and the media-archaeologist.
Letter Home is a film letter in which touristic images of the director's trip to Japan are digitally distorted. The basic strategy of this type of digital corruption is copying, which is used in the film to challenge the western perception of Japan as a 'copying culture'. The sound, by contrast, is not corrupted, which invites the viewer to project his or her own memories and sensations. The trip to Japan was a blast, full of astonishment and wonder.
