HINOIRINOKAZE-Wind of sunset- 20 minute
Yagumo, a village in the western regions. In this land, a legend of old has it that “the wind blows from the netherworld”. Kushinano Mutsu, aka Boy Mutsu, lives in Yagumo and plays the flute, but can’t produce a melody, even though his technique is good. One day, Mutsu has a dream. Surrounded by darkness, he encounters an elderly man and starts noticing the true meaning of the word “play”. Can he find the thing he cherishes, which he is on the verge of losing, inside the dream?
The Japanese short film Hinoirinokaze was shot in Izumo in the west and Kamakura in the east. The purpose of the film emphasized becoming aware of things which the eye can’t see, such as Japanese myths, dreams, the mind, consciousness, and memories, through fiction. The majority of Japanese people used to live in harmony with nature, protect nature’s providence, and ceaselessly experience joy and gratitude in the large cycle of the universe. I think we live by spending a lot of our time on the intention to satisfy ourselves as individuals, instead of living in the cycle of nature, in this age where material richness has increased. I had the courage to stop here and create a work in order to face not the facts, but the truth, with the eyes of my soul. I want the viewers to experience the “truth of living” through the film. That is the mission of this film.
