TIFF 2018. WAVELENGTHS: 1986 SUMMER BY TOSHIO MATSUMOTO
By José Sarmiento Hinojosa
Made somewhere between Sway (1985) and Engram (1987), Summer 1968 can be considered a transitional work that carries many of the elements of latter-period Matsumoto. For many, Matsumoto is the author behind the masterpiece Funeral Parade of Roses, but little more is popular on his experimental work through the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Many titles such as For the Damaged Right Eye, Atman or Engram carry out a variety of styles, manifestations and intentions, different classifications of the author’s obsessions and milestones of cinema in their own right.
