Austin - Chiemi Shimada

A journey through a young man’s private landscape. He does not appear on screen but through his soundscapes that lead the audience through his home, exploring the space of his domesticity.

Chiemi Shimada was born in Chiba, Japan in 1991 and currently studies filmmaking at Kingston University, London. She was introduced to European art cinema after moving to England, and then to structuralist film through an exchange study programme she undertook in Michigan, USA. Her films often derive from her personal experience, and present characters having uncertain or enigmatic experiences in domestic environments.
