Kyōgen stage/Eye specialist's examination room/Sushi counter. In each space two people meet. Their physical distance is contrasted by a flurry of emotions they each experience. Feelings of the most diverse kind, alternating between fear and fascination, tenderness and sanctuary, flare up and are immediately put into practice. I try to somehow blend and connect them.
Born in 1984, Yoriko is a filmmaker who makes tangible animation using such motifs as body parts and sushi. She received the New Face Award, Animation Division at the Agency for Cultural Affairs’ Japan Media Arts Festival, and was formally selected at the Berlin International Film Festival’s Berlinale Shorts, and more.
