The 12 day tale of the monster that died in 8

Video work

IWAI Shunji[Japan]


SATO Takumi bought a capsule monster online that supposedly fights against COVID-19, and streams its growth every day. This documentary-style film depicts Takumi’s life as he faces the growing monster day by day while communicating with his friends. The film was almost entirely produced remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
