‘Haiku’, an Experimental Film by Karina Rozunko & Vans Surf, Makes its Global Debut
The entirety of the Sano parking lot converged on Fairfax last night to sip beers, sup sushi, and watch the debut of Karina Rozunko and Vans Surf’s latest experimental visual offering, Haiku.
A symbolically-cut, 17-minute film inspired by the ancient Japanese 5-7-5 poetry form, the film exhibited a vibrant ensemble of spoken word overtures, abstract vignettes, and high-energy surfing by Karina herself along with Alex Knost, Holly Wawn, Lola Mignot, Noah Collins, and Tanner Rozunko. “Strap your seatbelt to your brain” and watch, above.
Packed into the small, once-silent movie theater in LA’s culture-rich Fairfax district, fans of Rozunko were taken on a poetic journey from Bali to Mexico, Sumatra to Japan, and into the often untapped recesses of the right brain, where creative, out-of-the-box thinking resides.
Live scoring and spoken word poetry by Monde UFO and Karina (respectively), added yet another layer of bespoke interest to the night’s events, as did elegant bites from Culver City’s sustainable sushi outfit, Fiish.
The film ‘Haiku’ now – is available to watch – watch it and enjoy.
(Yes, that was a haiku.)
