Mono no aware is part of the art film collection Human Frames that concentrates on psychological states such as happiness, desire, madness, fanaticism, fear, anger, isolation, melancholy and impermanence. This volume presents ten contemporary works from Asia and Europe that evoke the Japanese concept of mono no aware, "the pathos of things", and offer musings about transience and its intrinsic, wistful beauty. 

The Human Frames cycle presents a series of ten film programs examining the human condition through experimental film and video art. Comprising of both contemporary and archive images from across Asia and Europe, this project is inspired by the ancient theory of humoralism as a framework by which to analyze certain aspects of the human character. It focuses on ten emotional states and depicts the timeless and universal panoply of human tempers that lay beyond national, social and cultural affiliations.
