■Outline of the work
Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, witnessing the sadness of art students who had their graduation exhibitions canceled and their youth stolen away, Non was inspired to uplift the worn-out feelings of the world. She conceived the project to tell the story of "Ribbon," a tale of rejuvenation for art students whose futures were taken away.
The film depicts the struggles of a conflicted art student named "Itsuka," played by actress Non, who has had her means of expression taken away and is grappling with finding her purpose.
Keep an eye out for Non's unique concept of "Emotional Expression through Ribbon Art"! The film showcases the flow of various emotions of the protagonist using colorful ribbons. The dynamic movements of the ribbons, at times sharp and pointed, at times gracefully dancing, were brought to life by the impressive collaboration of Shin Godzilla director and special effects director Shinji Higuchi, along with assistant director and special effects supervisor Katsuro Onoue!
