About the artwork

A comedic battle of wit between an elderly lady and a con-man. This short film was conceived, written, directed, and produced by the artist, in collaboration with actress Michie Ikeda of Theater Group EN, film / TV actor Tooru Masuoka, and Yuichi Nagata JSC, the renowned Director of Photography of feature films such as “Water Boys”. The story was inspired by recent incidents in the Niigata Tokamachi region, where, after devastating earthquake and heavy snow storms, some con-men showed up among the volunteer helpers, and tried to deceive senior citizens.
