THE SNOWFIELD : A JOURNEY INTO THE WILD   


  2019         Japan    5’ 00” 



program note

Located at the northern tip of Japan, Soya region in Hokkaido is close to Siberia having a border to Russia. Soya is known as a sightseeing spot that has a natural vast landscape straddling over islands whereas most of the area is uncultivated to remain natural. The wilderness is covered with snow in winter and its changing form would make you feel like you are standing in the Antarctic circle. I tried to create a film showing flora and fauna surviving in a severe environment, natu- ral sceneries that have been continuing from the ancient times and the traces of people who live vigorously in this area.
