World Premiere

Mist of Seeds is a silent but poetic film, mirror of the art of Yoshinobu Nakagawa who has been creating works with papers and fabrics, at the crossroads of painting and sculpture. This 22-minute film shows, with exceptional mastery, the traditional art of Japan in the inspiring setting of nature. Works transported in a natural environment, thus take on a new symbolic value. By following the artist's patient work, in contact with the drawing, the material, this film offers a contemplative look at a work of great quality.
