36BIAF Trailer by Sunao Katabuchi. “ White Rabbits ” unveils.




The trailer of the 20th Bucheon International Animation Festival (19-23 OCT) is motivated from Sunao Katabuchi’s In This Corner of the World(2016), which won the Grand Prize (feature film category) at the latest edition of BIAF. In this Corner of the World(still on the Japanese theaters 588 days since its official theatrical release on 12 NOV 2016), will now become a live-action TV drama series on this summer.

BIAF’s 20th trailer is designed by personification of little, white rabbit, one of the important scenes in the film with Harumi who died in a time-delayed explosion at the film.

When I make animations, I always think that we, the screenwriters, can only 'create the brightness and darkness of the screen, and coat them with sounds.' That’s all...It is inside the mind of audience where this screen is; it is then completed into an actual ‘film’. To express my artistic view into a visible figure, I drew a character that jumps out from the completed screen, and walks into someone’s mind. - Sunao Katabuchi

Sunao Katabuchi is this year's jury president at BIAF2018. He is expecting to be on the stage at Roppongi, Tokyo with Non, who is known as voice acting for “Urano Suzu (Hojo Suzu),” 23th June as a special screening following Japan Media Arts Festival where he won the Grand Prize.
