The Trip (aka Travel) Kihachiro Kawamoto, 1973

I was saddened to learn recently that the great stop-motion animator Kihachiro Kawamoto passed away on August 23rd of this year, at the age of 85.

Though he studied and worked alongside the giants of Czech stop-motion, he retained a deep love of traditional Japanese puppet technique and theater.

His films were masterful, compelling and beautiful. I've posted a few before (Farce Anthropo-Cynique, The Demon, and The House of Flame.)
