Nippon Visions: Shorts

Nippon Visions   ½ 

NIPPON VISIONS: SHORTS presents a varied mix of Japanese short films, sometimes cheerful and light-hearted, sometimes serious and reflexive. Kicking off, the superhero CRAP-MAN in Hikaru TSUKUDA’s film has to accomplish a breathtaking mission. TRANSPARENT, THE WORLD IS. by Yuri MURAOKA explores mythical worlds in an experimental approach. CHIYO by Chiemi SHIMADA is a poetic filmic essay with the director’s grandmother at its center. In WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD by Tatsuya ISHII, the young protagonist must cope with the challenges of a difficult familial and social environment. TOKYO GIRL by Nebiro HASHIMOTO revolves around the impressions of a restless existence in the mega-city. Last but not least, WAAAH by Sawako KABUKI comprises the meaning of life in one minute.
