While filming this poetic graduation film at the University of Japan, Tasuku Nakagawa could not know how perfectly his surreal and ambitious full-CG work would reflect the current COVID 19 crisis when it was released this month.
Nakagawa's lonely character, made up of fallen candy jars, offers a literally bittersweet metaphor for modern loneliness as he wanders through an abandoned city.
The music, which is based on Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D, was also taken over by the director.
