While working on this film, the filmmaking team frequently adopted the methods of scientific documentary. The film’s first part is a painstaking study of the influence of cold weather on the harvest, but the later interviews with and ancient stories of the villagers create a tale of the modernization of Japanese society.

“The films that we shot collectively over the past seven or eight years aim to promote the rediscovery of the features of our natural landscape – rice, earth, water – and to present the stories sleeping in the hearts of the villagers.” S. Ogawa
