  6. TOKYO WAKA

    John Haptas and Kristine Samuelson / Japan / 2012 / 63 mins
    FILMMAKERS IN ATTENDANCE - A poem about a city, its people, and 20,000 crows. TOKYO WAKA is as much a carefully etched, lyrical portrait of Tokyo and its denizens as it is a full-fledged rendering of the surprisingly rich life of crows. It’s an evocative encapsulation of post-bubble Tokyo, when people caught in the flux of change seek their own precarious perches in an uncertain future.
