Fuyu no Hi is a 2003 animated film directed by Kihachiro Kawamoto. It is based upon the renga of the same name by the 17th century Japanese poet Basho.

The creation of the film followed the traditional collaborative nature of the source material—the visuals for each of the 36 stanzas were independently created by 35 different animators. As well as many Japanese animators, Kawamoto assembled leading names of animation from across the world. Each animator was asked to contribute at least 30 seconds to illustrate their stanza, and most of the sequences are under a minute (Yuriy Norshteyn's, though, is nearly two minutes long).

The released film consists of the 40-minute animation, followed by an hour-long "Making of" documentary, including interviews with the animators. Fuyu no Hi won the Grand Prize of the Japan Media Arts Festival in 2003.

It is movies like winter days that help you understand the formless art that is life. This anime goes beyond words,if you are willing to sit down with some patience, and are easily amused, give winter days a go. Beautiful artwork throughout the whole movie, it really has a beautiful flow and vibe to it. Enjoy!, I did.

Mixed Feelings
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 ...
