This DVD collection contains selected work produced from 1995 to 2002, including Onodera’s award-winning film “the basement girl,” and the feature “Skin Deep.”
The short films in this DVD volume are adventurous explorations of multiple film and video formats – from 16 mm and super 8 film, to analogue and digital toy cameras.The films are sensitive poetic ruminations on loss: the ending of relationships, the failure of perception, and the outsider’s aloneness. In contrast, the feature film “Skin Deep,” a riveting psychological drama about obsession, relationships and sexuality, leads us into worlds where people are never who they appear to be.
