Kidlat Tahimik, a director and performer, sought to recreate relations between the body and filmed image seen through “Asian eyes.” This groundbreaking project took the form of a documentary which Mr. Tahimik directed and in which he performed himself in order to show his own thinking about the different views of the body held by the “East” and the “West.”
