Pioneer of Japanese Animation
Film Center provides us Noburo Ofuji's elaborate handcrafted animation works this year with "Taketori Monogatari" restored by Koji Yamamura who is one of the leading Japanese animators living.

(Noburo Ofuji passed away before fiinishing up "Taketori Monogatari" almost 40 years ago and Koji Yamamura had accomplished its works.)

It is a sensational experience to see his films, since I have thought that Czech handcrafted puppet Animation is way much better than Japanese one. however, my thought has completely changed.

Characters in his films look really energetic despite no sounds and his imagination to make them move is beyond amazing.

It makes me realized that I still love Czech Puppet Animation and also it is worthwhile to focus on Japanese creativity, there are tons of brilliant art works here in Japan.
