OKAMOTO Masanori

Animated short film [Japan]

Inspired by TANEDA Santoka (1882-1940), one of Japan’s most prominent free-verse haiku poets, this animated work turns the emotion of “loneliness” into a symbol. Surrounded by mountain greenery in the midst of a solitary journey, the protagonist, redfaced and sl ightly tipsy, is portrayed in meticulous detail using a cutout technique.
(5 min. 53 sec.)
