Something for Thursday

‘On one rainy night in Tokyo, three strangers experience solitude from three unique perspectives.’

That’s the description of this short film, Tokyo Solitude, which YouTube’s algorithm offered up for me the other day. I found this utterly captivating; the imagery is amazing, with one breathtaking composition after another. It’s especially fascinating because my overwhelming impression of Tokyo at night is that it is ablaze with light and packed with people, but this film suggests otherwise: darkness and solitude exist there, and neither is necessarily a bad thing.

Take ten minutes and enter another world (set your resolution as high as it will go, turn up the volume or listen through headphones for the immersive soundtrack, and put it in fullscreen):
