Tokyo Tonight by Ziad Antar

Tokyo Tonight is one of the first videos made by Ziad Antar. Shot in northern Lebanon, the film presents unexpected utters of the word ‘Tokyo’. The rhythm of the video is defined by its alternating shots. Spoken outside of all discussion, at a great distance from its reference, while intermitting a repetitious melody produced by a plucking sound, the utterance is neither an observation nor a call to action, however, it evokes a set of imaginary connotations.
