What is Canon and Ron Howard's Canon Project Imaginat10n film series? According to a title card: “This is a filmmaking experiment to prove that we are all creative and anyone can sit in the director's chair.” That's anyone, including James Murphy, ex-LCD Soundsystem frontman and one of the most celebrated artists of his generation. But we're glad it's Murphy behind for Little Duck, his debut short film, shot in rural Japan. It follows a Japanese man called home to deal with his wayward older brother. If you've got even a single neglected relationship, you'll find some emotional resonance here.
