Radio Curious visits with filmmaker Kristine Samuelson, co-creator of the documentary, “Tokyo Waka: A City Poem” about the 20,000 crows that inhabit the city of Tokyo, Japan and the human relationships with them.
Barry Vogel, Attorney and Counselor is the Host and Producer of Radio Curious. Christina Aanestad is the Assistant Producer.
The more than 20,000 crows that inhabit the largest metropolis in the
World, have come to be an imposing and sometimes harassing influence on the
daily lives of the people with whom these clever birds share the city of Tokyo, Japan.
“Tokyo Waka: A City Poem” is a film poem about these crows and their people. In this edition of Radio Curious we visit with filmmaker Kristine Samuelson, a Professor of Humanistic Studies in the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University. She is the co-creator, along with her husband John Haptas, of the film “Tokyo Waka.”
Our visit with Kristine Samuelson from her home in Berkeley, California on
May 3, 2013 began when I asked her to describe the nature of their film poem.
The website to Kristine Samuelson and John Haptas is www.stylofilms.com.
Kristine Samuelson recommends two films: “Oblivion,” and “Underground Orchestra,” by Heddy Honigmann, a Peruvian born Dutch filmmaker.
