Japan Cuts 2016 - The Shell Collector Q&A
Q&A for the centerpiece presentation of The Shell Collector with director Yoshifumi Tsubota, star Lily Franky and producer Eric Nyari at the 10th anniversary of Japan Cuts Festival of New Japanese Film.
Living alone along the white sand and turquoise waters of Okinawa is a blind professor (Lily Franky) who spends his days collecting and writing about seashells. His solitude is interrupted when a woman (Shinobu Terajima) washes up unconscious on the shore. Restored to health, the young woman is stung by one of the professor's poisonous shellfish and unexpectedly cured of a rare disease. News about the shellfish's healing power spreads quickly and soon everyone seeks out the professor's cure, including his estranged son (Sosuke Ikematsu). Director Yoshifumi Tsubota delivers a hypnotically beautiful, impressionistic dream of a film that ponders the connection between man and nature. Featuring stunning location cinematography by Akiko Ashizawa and a spare, haunting score by Billy Martin (of Medeski Martin & Wood).
