The Train from Jokoji

Another film experiment from my trip to Japan in 2008. We were stranded at this train stop in Jokoji Japan, a small, rural village outside of Nagoya where the trains seldom stop. I ended up shooting a lot of footage of the trains passing by and really wanted to do something with it. The song Insensatez inspired me to tell the story of me stopping the train for m’lady. I really enjoyed the simple pleasure of having titles on the screen tell the story, much like an old film would have had, and I added the film grain filter and some slightly greenish color to give it that dated feel.
