Worlds apart from anime and close to experimental film, Japanese animator Naoyuki Tsuji creates a distinctive universe with a few simple, hand-drawn lines in charcoal and pastel. What first appears to be childlike crudeness in his animation is actually subtle, strange, and even "haunting and frightening" (The Guardian). Tsuji's films captivate us because they are vague recollections of beguiling childhood dreams and memories--the wonder of the puppet show, the mystery of clouds, and the attraction of monsters. This collection includes Trilogy About Clouds, A Feather Stares at the Dark, Experiment, Travel to the Lost World, Wake Up, and For Almost Forgotten Stories. In Japanese with English subtitles.
