Shijin no Shougai, or, A Poet's Life, is a Kihachiro Kawamoto kirigami animation, adapted from a short story by Kobo Abe. Kawamoto, who sadly passed away in 2010, was president of the Japanese Animation Association for over twenty years; his works are internationally respected for visionary use of traditional narrative forms and stop animation. His works are innately interesting, excitingly enjoyable, technically brilliant, and visually a feast.

All but three of Kawamoto's works, feature the use of puppetry, it's sort of become Kawamoto's calling card; especially when it was adopted into a TV adaptation of the ever-popular Romance of the Three Kingdoms, winning Kawamoto much fame. read more
