Original background music that runs throughout the work, documents of song lyrics and dialogue, short, photograph-like hand-processed 8mm film footage… These three elements are separated like oil and water, but the instant their light and sound waves reach the five senses of the audience, a creative fusion of sound, words, and imagery begins. A unique documentary calling out the destruction of the symbol of folk beliefs remaining in the Chichibu region.
