FILM | Reality is Invisible (1971)

In 1971 the experimental filmmaker Robert Fulton made the 16mm film Reality’s Invisible while teaching in the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts. Through candid interviews with VES students, impromptu recordings of faculty lectures, and lingering shots on concrete surfaces and spaces around Le Corbusier’s architecture, Reality’s Invisible is a frenetic and visually lush, almost visceral, portrayal of academic life at the Carpenter Center. The intimate footage captures the pedagogical activities, intellectual ideas and political concerns occupying students and faculty involved in the nascent days of a new visual arts program and building at Harvard. Pushing the limits of filmmaking, Fulton’s images and sounds, edited and layered, collide into a “tone,” as he later described it, revealing the chaos, fluidity and motion at the Carpenter Center. Robert Fulton's films are in the collection of the Harvard Film Archive

About the film

Your Name (Japanese: 君の名は。) “Kimi no Na wa. (Your Name.)” is a Japanese animated science fiction fantasy film and it the music was composed by Radwimps, a famous Japanese Rock Band. 

The story is set one month after a comet has fallen for the first time in a thousand years. Mitsuha, a high school girl living in the countryside, wants to live in the city because she is unhappy with her life in a small town. Then there’s Taki, he’s a high school student living in Tokyo working part-time in an Italian restaurant, who also needs a break from everyday life.

One day, Mitsuha has a dream where she is a young boy in Tokyo. On the other hand, Taki also has a dream where he is a female high school student in a town in the mountains that he has never been to. What’s the secret behind their dreams?

From director Makoto Shinkai, the innovative mind behind Voices of a Distant Star and 5 Centimeters Per Second, comes a beautiful masterpiece about time, the thread of fate, and the hearts of two young souls.
