Directed by Dean Yamada
In this meditative and poetic short, Tamotsu is faced with two unexpectedly difficult problems: an elderly man who won’t eat, and a persimmon that won’t dry. Through his interactions with a tableau of seemingly disparate characters, Tamotsu is faced with the meaning of death and life, and the process of letting go.
Producer: Rachel van der Merwe
