2018

Director Keita Kurosaka

Japan

We sometimes long for the landscape of the past which was much purer and much more beautiful than that of the present. Regardless of these nostalgic feelings, the natural landscape is continuously changing as if in constant flux, with a will almost of its own. The landscape, the mountains and streams, never remains the same or returns to as it was before. Through a series of several thousand pencil drawings, this work abstractly depicts this theme of the metamorphical nature of the landscape.
