Film Still from Shizugawa

Andrew Littlejohn, 27 min. (2017, re-cut 2019)

Shizugawa is a sonic composition constructed from unprocessed 5.1 surround sound recordings made in Minamisanriku Town (Miyagi Prefecture, Japan), between 2013 and 2015. On March 11, 2011, a tsunami up to 20 meters in height devastated the area following an undersea megathrust earthquake off the Northeast coast. Shizugawa presents an audible evocation of what came after: a town in the re-making.
