2015 | 90 min | English Subtitles | Directed by Keiichi Hara
From award-winning director Keiichi Hara (Colorful) and Japanese powerhouse Production I.G (creators of Ghost in the Shell) comes a remarkable story of the daughter behind one of historys most famous artists.
As all of Edo fl ocks to see the work of the revered painter Hokusai, his daughter O-Ei toils diligently insidehis studio. Her masterful portraits, dragons and erotic sketches sold under the name of her father are coveted by upper crust Lords and journeyman print makers alike. Shy and reserved in public, in the studio O-Ei is as brash and uninhibited as her father, smoking a pipe while sketching drawings that would make contemporary Japanese ladies blush. But despite this fi ercely independent spirit, O-Ei struggles under the domineering infl uence of her father and is ridiculed for lacking the life experience that she is attempting to portray in her art. Miss Hokusais bustling Edo (present day Tokyo) is filled with yokai spirits, dragons, and conniving tradesmen, while O-Eis relationships with her demanding father and blind younger sister provide a powerful emotional underpinning to this sumptuously-animated coming-of-age tale.
