Susumu Shingu, Yasuko Shingu / Documentary / Japanese, English, Italian, German

This charming, eloquent film looks at an artist who wants to create a wind-powered community.

Audience Award Nominee/ Documentary
The story of how Susumu Shingu moves from sculpture to architecture, and why he wants to do it, brings us into privileged contact with a passionate environmental story, a moving exploration of creativity, and a remarkably sweet and engaging human being. The artist’s lifelong “dialogue with the wind and with water” is evoked through beautiful, lustrous imagery and the wisdom of a man who has lived a long life with his eyes wide open.
