Part essay, part autobiography, the first book by Japanese filmmaker Daïchi Saïto offers a reflection on the artist's life, career and practice. With a foreword by André Habib, professor of film studies at the University of Montreal and a specialist in experimental cinema.
Daïchi Saïto (born in Japan, lives and works in Montreal) studied literature and philosophy in the U.S. and Hindi and Sanskrit in India before turning to film in Montreal. Co-founder of Double Negative, a Montreal-based group of film/video/installation/projection performance artists dedicated to the exhibition and production of experimental cinema, Saïto has been actively involved in Montreal's filmmaking community over a decade. His work has been widely exhibited in major film festivals, museums, galleries and cinematheques worldwide, including: Centre Pompidou (Paris); The Austrian Film Museum (Vienna); Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art (Porto); International Film Festival Rotterdam; The New York Film Festival's “Views from the Avant-Garde,” among others.
