  • Shiro Yagi is and experimental animated film that is inspired from the last sheet of existing music of the artist’s maternal grandfather, Sueo Mori. Mori was a poet, composer and high school teacher. The composition and poem was written in 1927. The film is set in a fictional “land of sleep”, where a mother and her two chidlren encounter the haunting music of their late grandfather. Narrated in the style of film telling, the story is part fact and fiction; and traces the imaginary in the place of the gaps and silences that are met in the process of recollection.
