Tokyo Waka: A City Poem
Tokyo Waka: A City Poem
Japan/USA, 2012, 63 minutes
Director: Kristine Samuelson & John Haptas

Aptly subtitled "a city poem," this documentary is as much a carefully etched, lyrical portrait of Tokyo and its denizens as it is a full-fledged rendering of the surprisingly rich life of crows, here embodying the wild, adaptive animistic spirit of the city. Tokyo Waka takes its cues from the least visible of city scavengers: the crows. Drawing from art, culture, Buddhist and Shinto spirituality and everyday anecdotes, the directors come at Tokyo's elusive crows from all angles, gathering remarkable footage of the whip-smart animals and their life in the city. It's an evocative encapsulation of post-bubble Tokyo.
