Ikeda Akira, Director, Screenwriter and Producer, Anatomy of a Paper Clip.
Festival Section: Hivos Tiger Awards Competition.
Japanese filmmaker IKEDA AKIRA chats to FRED about his feature ANATOMY OF A PAPER CLIP (Yamamori clip koujo no atari), which was presented at the 43rd International Film Festival Rotterdam.
Kogure is a paperclip bender in a paperclip factory. A man without characteristics. A stoical loser. One day he finds a butterfly in his flat. She becomes his wife, but is even stranger than the bizarre minimal world he lives in. Crazy and funny Japanese neofolk.
