This film was directed by a member of the Ogawa collective, Fukuda Katsuhiko, while they were finishing the documentary Sanrizuka: Heta Village. Fukuda left the collective after this film and continued making documentaries in the village of Heta.
"Ogawa Productions demonstrated a conceptualisation of cinema that aspired to collective decision-making and an unusual degree of partnership with their subjects. As a document of this process, this film raises fascinating questions about authorship in documentary cinema, and the elaborate tensions between direction and collaboration." - Markus Nornes
