The Portalist

This hypnotic journey from filmmaker Tim Georgeson follows Tokyo native Satoshi on his vintage motorbike through the city’s streets at night, while he reflects on all things nocturnal. At turns mystical and haunting, the film takes us through a portal in time, space, and toward a feeling that we didn’t know existed.

What emerges is a surreal sojourn into the unknown spaces of our everyday urban spaces—bringing new life to the filmic tradition of the road movie.
