My interest in the Japanese language led me to create these film. The Japanese language has a unique visual ability to capture a whole new meaning of literature and aesthetics. You realize this is even more, when you put words from different languages next to the Japanese. This formal dialogue would create a new form of meaning that deals with the presence of literature in animation. I intend to continue my formal study of Japanese literature, especially "haiku," until I am able to get the sence and use it in my directing fims.
