The cowboy hero, the lovely lady, and the evil villain – in his spoof on one of the oldest genres in film history, the western movie, Osamu Tezuka sets up a funny obstacle course of projection blunders and celluloid flaws for his drawn protagonists. What follows is a dramatic fight against a frame line with a will of its own, a tempest of scratches and the ruthless film tear.

Waves keep rolling at the screen, breaking, forming powerful eddies, leaving traces of their energy. They are made of plasticine. The animation becomes the visible expression of the intuitive forming of and the resistance offered by the raw material, accompanied by minimalist electronic sounds. With this film Ryo Orikasa creates a compelling haiku based on the works of the Japanese “poet of silence”, Yoshiro Ishihara.
