I Have No Memory of My Direction

Directed by Midi Onodera
Canada, 2005 (avant-garde / fiction, 77 minutes, colour)

Film Description:
"I Have No Memory of My Direction is a feature-length experimental narrative. The story unfolds through a Canadian-born Japanese woman's voice-over as she dreams her way though Japan. Ostensibly searching for an emotional connection with her aging father, the woman contemplates her own inherited culture and familial touchstones. Her North American pop-culture sensibility fuses with a distorted Japanese perspective to create a surreal interpretation of a 'Japan of the imagination.' This fictional landscape is peppered with invented Japanese myths, ruminations on memory loss, the temporal space of digital photography and the ghosts of inherited imagination."
