Kyoto Through The Words Of Hikari

CRAFT: Kyoto through the words of Hikari

Seattle-based producers Casey Warren and Danielle Krieger’s filmic portrait of Kyoto pays tribute to late poet Hikari-San. Visual poetry echoes the touching verse which gained Hikari a legion of online fans.

“We wanted to find a way to have Hikari-san’s presence felt within the piece. When written in Kanji, her name Hikari-san (ひかりさん) means ‘light’ (). The film incorporates light as a subtle yet present visual motif, from candles lit in a shrine to the omnipresent florescent lights seen throughout Kyoto streets at night.“ – Mindcastle via Nowness
