|Project||The Cat with a Million Lives (百万回生きた猫)|
SANO Yoko, picture novelist and essayist, is 70 years old now. She was diagnosed with cancer and told her days were numbered. Now she is cherishing her every sing day - days without big adventure, days just ordinary. Her most well-known piece, ‘The Cat with a Million Lives’ was published 33 years ago. The novel with the great insight of love and life is still popular in Japan and has penetrated each reader’s life. The camera captured the image of the people who read it out and talk about the life and death and Yoko whose days are numbered. They are connected only by the picture novel. The camera tried to find a sign of Yoko’s final destination and her existing life in Tokyo, Milan and Peking where Yoko has been.
‘The Cat with a Million Lives’ has been a long-time best seller picture novel more than 30 years in Japan. This film is the story about life and death through the picture novelist Yoko Sano and ‘The Cat with a Million Lives’ readers surround.
