France 2017, 63 min, English and Japanese, Hebrew & English subtitles

A chance encounter between two music- and movie-loving strangers leads Italian director Ila Bêka to spend a week with Moriyama-San. His Japanese host lives alone in an unusual house: A series of ten white minimalist cubes, disconnected rooms spread around paths and greenery, like “A little village in the middle of the woods, in the middle of Tokyo”. The contents of the house are as challenging as its design. Moriyama-San is a huge fan of noise music, subversive literature, and experimental cinema. He has never left Tokyo, but his inner world knows no bounds. Bêka, who created the film with his partner Louise Lemoine (“The Infinite Happiness”, “Barbicania”), gently and sensitively presents this special man and his house, now one of the most well-known houses in the city.
