Time is, as it has been said by John Cage on music, the most important issue on film. (Takahiko Iimura) In concentrating on this set of problems, often wrongly seen as minimalist, Iimura went much, much further than any other film artist in exploring a kind of art-science. This concern with the experience of time, its measured passage and the analogy between time and space, has been the main recurring theme at the centre of his work. Malcolm Le Grice 24 FRAMES PER SECOND, 1975-78, 10 min 35 sec Both in terms of its examination of time and space, of light and darkness, of visuals and sounds; and in terms of its demands and potential rewards for an audience, 24 Frames Per Second is a quintessential Iimura film. Scott MacDonald TIMED 1, 2, 3 (From MODELS, Reel 1), 1972, 10 min 15 sec My favorite section of Models - Timed 1, 2, 3 - is a particularly effective interweaving of visuals and sounds...All in all, the number of interesting filmic explorations in the eight section of Models makes it one of Iimura's most impressive films. Scott MacDonald ONE FRAME DURATION, 1977, 11min The film concerns the duration ‘or non-duration) of one frame, as the title indicates, the minimum unit of film in space (dark and light) with sound (or silent) and their various combinations. You can not expect when the frame comes as it comes almost suddenly. Like a break or a lightning, it is a very distinct moment which I found quite exciting. - T.I.
