Shisa Dog and Chicken

Japan, 2015
Avant-Garde, Short


A traditional Shisa (combination of a dog and lion from Okinawan mythology) animated by an invisible person. Meanwhile, chickens walk or flutter across the screen. The slow motion footage combines centuries old ceremony with daily life, to produce an otherworldly situation.
