Now you can purchase Onodera’s feature-length, experimental, narrative video. “I have no memory of my direction” (Canada 77 min. 2005) fuses a contemporary North American experience with a fragmented image of Japan as it follows the account of a Canadian-born Japanese woman. Ostensibly searching for an emotional connection with her aging father, the woman contemplates her own inherited culture and familial ties. This video bridges gaps between a diasporic imagination and lived experience as it moves through the disjointed notions of cultural identity, memory and belonging.
