《COLUMBOS》

2012 | 9’15” | DCP | Japan | Color | Animation, Experimental
Director: Kawai + Okamura
Music: Marihiko Hara
Distribution: CaRTe bLaNChe

A homicide scene with the corpse of an actress dressed in red, a man with a gunshot wound, and an internationally well-known detective. Is this the climax scene from some drama? Or is it a murder that took place during the shooting of a film?
“Columbos” is a meta-mystery movie containing fragments of crime and suspense in a refractive world.
