[ Story ]

Yamaguchi Sayoko, Asia's first top-class model who appeared in fashion shows around the world and was praised for her "oriental mystique" in the 1970s, is the subject of this documentary. Near Equal Kusama Yayoi I Adore Myself director Matsumoto Takako, an intimate friend of Yamaguchi, also directs this film.
Yamaguchi Sayoko was an expressive individual continually at the forefront of her time in film, dance performances, garmentdesign, etc. The film throws into relief Yamaguchi's hidden side through the vast amounts of personal possessions made public eight years after her death, testimony from those who knew her intimately, and priceless footage that remains of her.

[ Story ]
The documentary has finally been completed. It took a tremendous effort of one and half years shooting KUSAMA, the artist who never stops advancing in the international art world.
The camera records the essence of her art as it wells up in the conflict between life, death and love, sometimes without missing a beat.
This film covers a pivotal moment for KUSAMA , as she tries to complete her new series of 50 monochrome drawings in size F100. It is an overwhelming image, showing a bare canvas transforming into a completed work, as captured by a fixed point camera.
This has made it possible to witness the world have been waiting for.
It is the first time that we can see the creative activity and the daily life of KUSAMA.
Her firm self-confidence makes her say, ”I’m a genius !”
Her dignified spirit comes out as she challenges a new work.
Her warm face and gestures appear here and there in daily life.
The each frame of this film gives you a better picture of KUSAMA’s world and you will never get tired of being part of it.
