Kazuhiro Soda: Making Images Speak

Oyster Factory Kazuhiro Soda

Film index A to Z

Kaki Kouba

Turning his camera to a modest subject – an oyster processing plant – Oyster Factory is a fine example of Soda’s ability to approach important questions naturally and powerfully by starting from small details. The fascinating actions and conversations of the fishermen and workers provide a natural window on some of today’s big issues: immigration (in this case, from China), the environment (the trauma of Fukushima), the globalized economy and the generation gap. (ACO)

Presented in collaboration with the Japan Foundation, la Chaire René Malo, the Concordia University’s Studio Arts Department Visiting Artist’s Speaker’s Series Conversations in Contemporary Art and the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema - Concordia University
