Magino Story: Raising Silkworms

Magino monogatari: Yosan-hen

Directed by Shinsuke Ogawa
Japan, 1977


The film shows us in exquisite detail the process involved: from the birth of the silkworms in the spring, through the selection of mulberry leaves for their food and the repeated shedding of their skins as they grow, to the cocoons that they make in time for the autumn.
