Time is, as it has been said by John Cage on music, the most important issue on film. (T.I.)
"In concentrating on this set of problems, often wrongly seen as 'minimalist,' Iimura went much, much further than any other film artist in exploring a kind of art-science. This concern with the experience of time, its measured passage and the analogy between time and space, has been the main recurring theme at the centre of his work."
