REVIEW FOR PEEP TV SHOW - A JAPANESE FILM BY YUKAKA TSUCHIYA
The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a French movie, Peep TV Show, at Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet, on 9th May. This movie is directed by Yukaka Tsuchiya, and has Takayuki Hasegawa and Shiori in the leading roles.
The narrative of this film commences on August 15, 2002, on which date Hasegawa begins posting the entries from the WTC terrorist pilots' diaries onto his personal website which he calls the "Peep TV Show". One entry a day, as a form of a dark countdown to the 1-year anniversary of the collapse of the World Trade Centers.
Along with the diary entries, Hasegawa streams videos he has captured of unwitting individuals, whether on the street or through surveillance cameras he has strategically placed looking in through apartment windows.
His behavior and project soon catches the attention of Moe, a similarly disenfrachised youth who has immersed herself in the Goth Lolitha culture, wherein young adult females dress like gothic dolls. After regularly visiting Hasegawa's site, Moe eventually asks to join in the capture and creation of his broadcasts. Together they count down the remaining days to the 9/11 anniversary.
The entry is only for the members. Please contact Bh S S Prakash Reddy of the Hyderabad Film Club at 2373-0841/93910-20243 for further details.
