rain town

10 Apr

This hauntingly beautiful mood piece is Hiroyasu Ishida’s graduation film project at Kyoto Seika University.  The pacing is a bit slow but the music, coupled with the rain is quite lovely.  A few scenes are reminiscent of Castle in the Sky, so if you’re a fan of Hayao Miyazaki’s work then you’ll enjoy this short.


In this town, since who knows when, rain has never stopped.
Residents moved out to suburbs and high ground around
“rain town.”
People’s memories are now deeply submerged.
But into this forgotten rainy town
sometimes, someone wanders.
