I'm wondering if anyone's seen _The tale of a floating world/Le conte du
monde flottant_, a film playing at the new media fest in Montreal.  It looks
a bit like high-tech Greenaway, and by looking at the film-maker Alain
Escalle's web-page, it seems to feature quite the mix of aesthetic/violent
images--butoh, the bomb, an Izumi Kyoka-esque madwoman...The digital nature
of the project seemed potentially interesting, potentially
techno-orientalist overhaul...

Thanks for any comments.

oddly enough for a new media festival, the program does not seem to have a
URL listed--sorry!
