"Film History According to SHIMURAbros''
It was just a few years ago that I came to know the work of SHIMURAbros. Looking back on it, I must have encountered it at a group exhibition some time around summer 2009, but I have no clear memories of this. The first time I saw a show of only their work, in autumn 2010 in Kyoto, I was awestruck. Why did it take so long for me to notice them? In fact, this simple question contains a clue to understanding the work of SHIMURAbros, as I will explain later. First, let me retrace my steps.
