To coincide with the Close-Up Film Centre's Theatre Scorpio season, Flat Time House presents 16mm projections of three short films by Motoharu Jonouchi.


Hi-Red Centre Shelter Plan, 1964 (16mm, 19 mins) Shinjuku Station, 1974 (16mm, 15 mins) Gewaltpia Trailer, 1968 (16mm, 12 mins) The films will be introduced by Go Hirasawa (Meiji Gakuin University, Tokyo), editor of Underground Film Archives, and Julian Ross (University of Leeds), curators of the season. Motoharu Jonouchi was one of the leaders of the Nihon University Film Studies Club and the legendary VAN Film Research Centre where artists enacted cross-disciplinary collaborations to explore the art of film. Jonouchi's camera recorded artistic events, such as 'happening' art by Hi-Red Centre in Hi-Red Centre Shelter Plan as well as socio-political protests in Mass Collective Bargaining at Nihon University (1968). What was most remarkable about Jonouchi was his ability to integrate his personal vision into his documentation, creating a concoction of personal and collective, imaginary and tangible spaces. In their meticulous assemblage of individual shots of different spaces imbued with the symbolic significance of political confrontation, [Jonouchi's films] rejected the theatrics of spectacle, instead establishing a radical materialism of spaces in both structure and methodology" [Jonathan M. Hall]"
