    Documentary

    In southern Japan, the erupting Sakurajima volcano threatens to devastate nearby towns and cities. From there, Pierre Carniaux asks his friend Yusuke Oba what he would miss most if every­thing were to vanish. A hazy reverie unfolds from a man who expresses nostalgia for a foretold disappea­rance. The eruption and its lava are superimposed over the city still in motion, before eye-wit­nesses. The image burns and heralds obliteration. Under fire, under water, Yusuke’s ghostly silhouette accom­panies the journey across the city that is disintegrating, trapped between a past yet to come and a future already irradiated by the impermanence of things. His voice vague and his face hazy, the film depicts Yusuke as being at the dawn of a decaying world, but also a renewal.
