Kazuhiro Soda: Making Images Speak

The Big House Terri Sarris, Markus Nornes, Kazuhiro Soda, Cinéastes De L'Université Du Michigan

Film index A to Z

In all, 17 filmmakers participated in this group project, including 14 of Soda’s University of Michigan students. In this educational setting, they turned their cameras on Ann Arbor’s massive football stadium, known as “the Big House.” The film isn’t concerned with the games played there, but with the people who work in or pass through the venue, which seats up to 100,000 people. The kaleidoscopic set of observations has several levels, making the filmed microcosm a snapshot of American society, set against the tumultuous backdrop of Donald Trump’s successful election campaign.

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
