ABOUT THE PROJECT

       Shinto: The Way of The Kami - Drops of Sun is a short (about 5 minutes) documentary film created as a part of the VideoWords project (http://videowords.altervista.org/). Project Art Director describes it as follows: "Thirty international artists, are called to interpret fifteen pairs of words, antinomical to each other. These words represent many aspects of life, emotions and human expectations."

       The Shinto Film Universe was called upon to interpret the word "Love".

       Shinto is an unique philosophy based on gratitude, commitment and deep connection to the kami - the energy of nature. Might that deep commitment and connection to kami and nature be love? There is certainly deeply-rooted affection, unparalleled fondness and need, in most of the Japanese people, to care for and protect the spirits of nature. To show respect and devotion. To be like drops of sun.
