Director Tetsuaki Matsue (Annyong Kimchi) puts together what didgeridoo artist Goma has forgotten.
This documentary charts the career of a 20 year old didgeridoo player, using photo’s and home-made film footage as well as his live performances and his busking around the globe.
This film is for the serious percussion fans, as the entire 72mins sound track is of Goma‘s work along with his Jungle Rhythm Section, Kosaki Tsuji Percussion, Kenta Tajika Percussion and Kyoichi Shiino Drums.
An unorthodox musical documentary on the didgeridoo maestro Goma, who suffers from an inability to form new memories following a traffic accident at the peak of his career. Directed by one of the most consistently interesting filmmakers on Japan’s independent scene, the film is a triumph of creative ingenuity and received the audience award at the 26th Tokyo International Film Festival.
Seamlessly blending archive live and studio footage of Goma’s performances with his own flashbacks and animations, the film charts the musician’s rehabilitation with the aid of his wife Sumie’s diaries. With its innovative use of 3D and the delirious hypnotic throb of GOMA’s playing alongside the relentless rhythms of his three-man percussion ensemble, the Jungle Rhythm Section, Matsue’s depiction of a man frozen in the moment, with little conception of either future or past, is a truly unique sensory experience.
