CINEMATOGRAPHY BY Motomu Ishigaki
In a park of New York City, Genoel recites a letter.

Silence in Asia which is primarily a listening culture does not signal the withholding of information as it does in most western cultures, but rather it signifies careful thought or is seen as calming pause. This is evidenced in the meditative works of the Japanese artists Kenichi Nakajima and Hiroshi Sunairi. (By: Thalia Vrachopoulos)
