Animaze Daze in Cannes Selection What they Believe by Shoko Hara

  • Glad tidings about a device that will turn a life around for good – Three treasure hunters follow the cross – A father and a son share the secrets of everlasting joy – On the other hand, a crippled child can only find serenity inside his model railway. A miracle healer shall finally bring him salvation... 
    Little by little, odd human beings and an odd world will be made manifest. Always with them is a laughing kookaburra, suggesting what may be the only solution to this madness: Laughing lightheartedly. 

    The events portrayed in this movie are a collage of actual occurrences. These anecdotes of ambiguous love and truth have been collected in preoccupation with evangelical Christians.

Director Statement

Based on actual encounters with neo-charismatic congregations. This film’s "narration" is all about association and graphic visualization, not a consistent story arc. It feels erratic and arbitrary, just like the features characters’ ideologies.
