robot kamii chibizounomaki
Taruhi Furuta, Seiichi Tabata
Children’s dreams of eating lots and lots of cake become connected with something much bigger in this kamishibai, which overflows with life. The children’s longing for cake becomes the wish to build a future in which everyone in town is happy; the development of this connection invites a rich sense of kyokan. The kamishibai makes the most of a fresh creativity and laudable perspective on children that could only have come from Taruhi Furuta and Seiichi Tabata.
