Further developing her form of first-person filmmaking, and working in the Super-8 home movie format, <i>Kya ka ra ba a</i> is a personal exploration of Naomi Kawase's innermost being. Often using a subjective camera, the filmmaker casts an impressionist gaze on the world around her, looks back on her own life, questions her grandmother, and seeks to fill the void of an absent father. The film poetically juxtaposes images of the present and reflections of the past, all informed with an acute sense of loss.
