In a collaboration of a different approach, visvim and creative Young Kim (also known as Suitman) create a film titled “A Cycle of Craftsmanship”. visvim’s penchant for quality and story-telling are no secret as this film focuses on a Kyo-Ningyo (Kyoto Doll) shop and its sixteen generation history. The 400 year-old store owner had begun to face some difficult times. Upholding quality, craftsmanship,a dwindling demand for Kyo-Ningyo had culminated into difficulty running a retail space while maintaining the same level of commitment. Eventually the store owner’s decision to close his store had a profound and introspective effect on visvim founder Hiroki Nakamura which led to the creation of this film. The multi-region DVD is available at F.I.L. stores across Japan and Asia.
