The Mouth of the Cave and the Giant Voice is an experimental stereo channel sound film that uses field recordings to explore the evidential value of oral testimony and documentary images in the particular spaces of the Okinawan environment where memories of the Pacific war are stirred up by the sounds made by the activities of US military bases on the island. As such it explores ‘new approaches to environmental recording and soundscape composition’.
Presented by the Intermedia Workshop with support from the Department of Anthropology (University of Texas at Austin)
