In Silence Has No Wings, a boy on the northern island of Hokkaido, in Japan, catches a butterfly from Nagasaki, at the southern end of the archipelago.
Directed by Kazuo Kuroki who intented to make a political film, but realized the poetry to cover his message had took over!

If interested, you can read this interview with director Kuroki who shares more details about the film, his intentions! Considering it’s an experimental yet poetic film, this might be useful to have a better understanding!
