  • Figure 6.13. Two performances of Iimura Takahiko’s White Calligraphy. On the top, the director writes on a small projected image while the film runs (the character is 命, or “life”). The bottom image shows the theater at the instant the house lights go on, the projector aimed at the screen Iimura painted on during the film’s performance.
