Le Mont Fuji vu d'un train en marche
Mount Fuji Seen from a Moving Train

  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

This is a poetic and animated meditation inspired by two trips the director made to Japan. Images and sounds from daily life as well as recordings of his performances, most notably one with the dancer-choreographer Teita Iwabushi. There is no story as such, but a formal construction with sound and images. What can be seen in Japan when Mount Fuji is invisible, lost in the clouds?
