‘Dozens of Norths’ is a debut feature-length film by Yamamura. His bleak, yet darkly humorous worldview is presented in its uncompromised glory through his signature hand-drawn animations. The basis of the film is a series of illustrations and texts that Yamamura had created in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. The film elevates modern-day suffering caused by real-life events into a mythical and universal dimension and the absurdities and tragedies of human existence are told with injections of hope.
