Today At The Clinton Street Theater
Church of Film presents CONFESSION, THEORY, ACTRESS
The stories, traumas, and psyches of three actresses. Mazumori Shoko loses, or thinks she loses, her voice in a dream and must speak through her understudy, Rie. But what really happened in that dream, or in reality? Akiko Kaido believes she is being menaced by the wife of her lover, but it may be that she is the one being deceived. Makiko Isaku returns to her hometown to recount to her costumer the tale of a failed double suicide between with her childhood lover... but she may have forgotten who her lover was. Kiju Yoshida's fractured psychic topography is a spellbinding web drawing on influences of Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni in which every immaculately crafted shot tells its own sad or sinister story.
