The Whispering Star


Yoko is an android delivering interstellar packages. She doesn’t have many opportunities for conversation, but wonders what kind of peculiar creatures those humans are. The film was shot mainly in the evacuation zones around Fukushima, with the participation of many local amateur actors. Showing another side of his talent, Sion SONO’s experimental sci­-fi parable is still highly expressive and unique. (Synopsis from Nippon Connection)
