About the film:
Tokyo Waka, 53.00, Kristine Samuelson, John Haptas
Best Of Festival Winner
A poem about a city, its people, and 20,000 crows.
TOKYO WAKA is as much a carefully etched, lyrical portrait of Tokyo and its denizens as it is a full-fledged rendering of the surprisingly rich life of crows. It’s an evocative encapsulation of post-bubble Tokyo, when people caught in the flux of change seek their own precarious perches in an uncertain future.
“A nimble consideration of the collision between the wildness of nature and the orderly bustle of modern urban life.” – A. O. Scott, The New York Times
Filmmakers Kristine Samuelson and John Haptas will be there to introduce and talk about their film.
