PANIC ROOM

HD / color / stereo / 6:00 / 16:9 / 2011

Shot over a three-month period, PANIC ROOM documents a small Tokyo apartment before and after the East Japan earthquake and the ensuing nuclear outbreak in 2011. The ordinary apartment, a seemingly uneventful domestic space, suddenly becomes a mirror of both a collapsing physical reality and a shaken personal state, creating an intertwining parallel between the external and the psychological that reflects the panicking times of the great catastrophe.
