The Scarecrows

2019, 25 minutes

The Scarecrows is the story of a dying Japanese village and its struggle for survival.

The Scarecrows (with the working title Route 439) is the story of a dying Japanese village and its struggle for survival, as the remaining 27 residents use peculiar methods of repopulation to save the village from fading into the landscape forever. The film was shot in Japan in August 2018 and is currently in the late post-production stage. Working with a mixed European/Japanese crew, we gained intimate access to the colorful inhabitants of Nagoro village, deep in the mountains of Shikoku island.
