This Cine-poem is based on my literary work, named "Re-Minder". Initially it was a short story for an omnibus film, but as the plan didn't realize, I developed the idea into the length of a feature film and then made it into a novel. I don't know to what genre it belongs, most likely a kind of near future Sci-fi with artificial intelligence,virtual reality and on-line combat game played with global scale. In fact it deals with a problem of cultural degradation in the technology-centered globalized society without spiritual values. In such a society a young old-fashioned artist, of course, can't live. Namely it deals with our reality. The novel has 3 chapters; Re-MIND(mainly based on the original short), GAME and RITUAL. This clip shows mainly the atmosphere of 1-st Chapter, but partly citing text from Chapter 2 and 3, where the story develops around the first online virtual reality game and the first A.I.with self-consciousness, which is caused by a sad accident. The heroine Lisa is a science journalist with cool atmosphere, but she has something spiritual in herself, the sense of mystery, and of the harmony ruling the Universe. There are also comical group portraits of people living in near-future Japan, as the scenario for a feature film, which was the bases of the roman, was written in 2003, when the economic recession was not so seriously felt, and we had no fear for radiation, as today.

This time I revised only a few details of it. The main plot of this story had always been mythological, so it's not the author's caprice to include Max Klinger's works whose name is mentioned by young graphic artist Ryu Tujimura.
