We are happy to present Lisa Spilliaert`s debut feature N.P at Filmhuis Cavia this spring. In this silent film, set during one Japanese summer, four young people discover how one book unites them. All four are fascinated with the novel N.P by the late and mysterious Sarao Takase. The eponymous film N.P dissects the young characters’ complex web of relationships. How does a translation relate to the original? How does fiction relate to reality? And what is the nature of the often incestuous interaction between the protagonists? The strikingly beautiful colours of the summer define the mood and atmosphere of the film, turning its complex, dark heart into a serene and glowing meditation on the young and on the influence of past experiences on one’s life.
Film screening in collaboration with Filmhuis Cavia / in the context of Lisa Spilliaert`s exhibition Growth Record (12 March – 15 May 2022). Q&A with Lisa Spilliaert will take place afterwards.
