Sugai Ken – “Douijiri” – by Kiyotaka Sumiyoshi

“My conversation with Sugai Ken about his experience creating ‘Doujiri’ links back to his travels to Kyoto. First-person shots allow us to relive Ken’s journey through Kyoto’s mystical bamboo forest. Ken wanted to visualize specific Japanese folk arts with this video, all of which have been used for centuries. Each object presented in the video has a special meaning as a ceremonial object or ritual offering.” – Kiyotaka Sumiyoshi
