"Minka" trailer (by Birdling Films)

This is an amazing trailer, for what I hope will be a wonderful film. Quite apart from the fact that it’s partly about traditional Japanese architecture (which I love), the thing I really like about it is that it has a real sense of stillness and quiet which is quite rare in film making now. In some ways, it reminded me of Into Great Silence, a film about a Carthusian monastery.

Thanks to Jeff Ridpath for pointing it out to me!

James commented that a photograph I’d posted reminded him of a short animated film he’d seen. This is that film, and it is one of the most moving and beautiful things I’ve seen in a long time. Have a handkerchief ready when you watch it.
