MIZUMOTO Hiroyuki / 2004 / digital / color / 17min.
A world in which protagonists of both animated and live action segments proceed in their respective journeys. Characters continue their incoherent monologues, monsters appear suddenly, and in a world that constantly lacks consistency “organized” humans and spirits clash ceaselessly to no clear purpose. In the end, the two journeys meet, and the two travelers themselves are also found to be totally untamable beasts. (From the 2005 IFF catalogue)
