Haiku in Brooklyn

I picked some ancient Japanese poems. Or perhaps it would be more correct to say that they picked me. For each of them, I imagined and wrote a story. These screenplays became the inspiration for the short film I shot in Brooklyn. Selected for the Short Film Corner at Cannes,  the Big Apple Film Festival at New York and the ACT NOW Foundation event in Brooklyn.
