Through a gray blanket of cloud, the contours of a mountain can be barely discerned. This is Mount Fuji, a volcano with many faces and of immeasurable cultural and symbolic significance. Four thousand exceptional and diverse photographs from the past 150 years form the basis for this film. This art-film project is in essence a film made entirely with stills: a filmic experiment balancing delicately between documentary and fiction.
