Realm of Vegetables
38, company employee, Japan
|Although he was born into a farm family, the
hero has not previously farmed himself. That was because he had
developed something of a complex about farming. However, he has now
become disillusioned with his life as a salaried company employee, a
life that never seems to change. He decides to try his hand at raising
vegetables. Even though he suffers setbacks, the man is finally able to
bring in a harvest of sorts. Encouraged by this small success, he now
dreams of getting into organic farming on a professional basis.
|This work shows how a manƒ†s life is
transformed once he starts growing vegetables. The camera angles and
editing are exquisite, and effectively show what this man is all about.
The film is a reconfirmation of the great power that the video medium
has to express the artistic sensibility of the makers of films.
