Ojiisan no Lamp, Shashinkan Recommendations
Great shorts, with a historical Japanese setting, whose stories are based on certain transitions during historical periods:
1. Ojiisan no Lamp is based on a technological transition during the late 19th century. Not going to spoil.
2. Shashinkan is a dramatic short whose setting covers part of the Interbellum, WWII up to postwar Japan.
Two shorts which combine family history with transitional points of Japanese history (19th century to post-WW2). Both have beautiful art and melancholic mood with a twist happy end.
