Project coordinated by Kihachiro Kawamoto that brought together 36 directors of animated films so that each one of them directed a short film that represented the haiku that each of them choose. In addition to that structurally it is very curious, because each short links with the next, since it takes the last line of the previous haiku and continues it with its own.
As usually happens with this type of joint films in which several directors are involved, the result ends up being quite irregular. There are some shorts like the ones of Raoul Servais or Yuri Norstein that are beautiful, and many others without
Overall, I would say that it is quite interesting, not only to see the number of different animation styles and techniques, but also because of the challenge of transforming a haiku into an image in movement and sound.
I strongly recommend to those who liked 'Winter Days' not to miss the making of, I liked it even more than the movie itself, I find it impressive how difficult it is to make some shorts that looks simple in appearance, and the amount of visual techniques that are invented.
