KANZEON

KANZEON
 
2010
87 minutes
Directors: Neil Cantwell & Tim Grabham
 
Taking its name from an alternative reading of the name for the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kannon, KanZeOn, which can be translated as “she who hears the cries of the world” is an unorthodox but utterly magical meditation on sound and the ritual and philosophical role it plays in Japanese religion.
 
Filmed in Kyushu, the film looks at, and more importantly listens to, three very special Japanese musicans: Akinobu Tatsumi, a ‘hip-hop priest’; Eri Fuji, a player of sho (an ancient instrument thought to evoke the phoenix’s cry); and Akihiro Itomi, a master of Noh theatre who is also into jazz.
 
As a documentary, KanZeOn does not seek to explain as much as to enlighten, taking the viewer on a hypnotic sensual journey from the timeless to the modern by way of a mystical parade of images that resonate seamlessly with the sounds.
