IN BETWEEN MOUNTAINS AND OCEANS | November 14th, 2018
Directed by Masaaki Miyazawa
2016, Japan, 78 Minutes
In Between Mountains and Oceans invites the viewer to embark on a journey into a sacred forest where every twenty years, Japan’s Shikinen Sengu ceremony reinforces the bond between humanity and nature in the rebuilding of the Ise Shrine. Inspired by the idea of sending a message to the future in the same way this ancient shrine keeps alive the traditions of the past, acclaimed photographer Masaaki Miyazawa used an ultra-high resolution 4K camera to create a breathtaking visual journey linking the Ise forest with other forests throughout Japan. With crystal-clear photography, stirring music, and words of wisdom from twelve of Japan’s most intriguing personalities, this is a powerful, quiet and beautiful film.
