Sarusuberi: Miss Hokusai

HARA Keiichi

Animated feature film [Japan]

This is a feature-length adaptation of the manga Sarusuberi by SUGIURA Hinako, a researcher of Edo Era customs. It is set in the town of old Edo, a community in Edo that is always emotionally turbulent, including fires and troubles with fairies. The story centers on Oei (later known as KATSUSHIKA Oui), the daughter of leading ukiyoe woodblock print artist KATSUSHIKA Hokusai, and depicts the lives of people in Edo that also have relevance for us today.
(1 h. 29 min.)
