We had an Utena night at e-flux.
I don’t know why but e-flux held the screening for “Revolutionary Girl Utena: Adolescence Apocalypse” yes, It’s Utena. So we visited their screening room.
I was feeling something sad at first because everyone was giggling so hard. Can’t you feel the characters? so I thought. But actually, for all they laughing, they felt deeply this film so heavy. I could feel it, when I saw which scenes made they silent. Yes, we all laughed together when Utena transforms into an Utena car.
After the film, we had a discussion. With who curated this screening, Daniella Brito and Dillon Rose Gardner, And we had the exciting guests, Henry Rodriguez and Wayne Bruce (Ducky). I was so surprising when many audiences completely watched all over the TV series Utena. And Ducky had quoted the words which Ikuhara said so many time.
