    The Magino Village Story - Raising Silkworms

    In Yamagata, Ogawa started a new series: “The Magino Village Story.” Once again the collective lived with its subjects, this time in a small silkworm barn borrowed from a farmer-poet. They converted it into a home and film studio, where anywhere from ten to twenty-five men, women and children lived and worked. After moving, Ogawa immediately went into a mental slump and seemed depressed. His wife spearheaded this film, partly hoping to revitalize the director. A look at the local raising of silkworms, this charming film deploys many of the filmmaking strategies which would reappear in subsequent work.
