Thought you guys might dig this short film I directed on Yoskay preparing for his Hong Kong Times Square show:
Yoskay wrote a lovely letter about the film:
For this film, we originally talked about having a Japanese folklore or an old myth as a narrative.... I couldn't find the story that had connection or relation to my art... So I suggested having my girlfriend Emi read one of my grandmother 's letters I received before she passed away... Due to complex facts, I wasn't able to return home for my own grandmother's funeral... During that time I Skyped with my mother and she showed me my grandmother lying very peacefully in a white kimono. She looked much older and skinnier than I remembered her to be... It felt strange to see my grandmother on the computer screen and I couldn't really grasp what was going on emotionally at the time... I felt selfish and some of my family got upset about it... This film project was an opportunity for me to reach back to my grandmother and report my well being and to introduce my art work and my girlfriend to her. I miss you very much and I hope this little film of ours will reach you eventually. Love you.
Your Grandson, Yoskay
