The Fox of Shichigorosawa
The Fox of Shichigorosawa
Tune SUGIHARA / 13:45 / Japan / Animation / 2014
Higashiyama, the home of the foxes, has become an illegal dumping ground. This results in the decrease of small animals, which the mother fox relied on as prey to feed her children. The fox comes down from the mountains in search of food to feed her children, and comes upon a human village. This story is told in the Ainu language, which has been deemed a critically endangered language by UNESCO.
Tune SUGIHARA was born in Yokosuka, Japan in 1973. She is an award winning short filmmaker, animation director, scriptwriter and audio guide commentator for Kabuki theatre. She studied graphic design in High School, and Media Art in college. She then went on to become a CG designer in 1994. After working for Asia-Pacific Cultural Centre for UNESCO (ACCU) as a program officer for the cultural exchange programme, Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) for five years, she went back to the video production industry. Today, she is part of programs about Japanese Folktales, as a director and writer.
