Synopsis

National Geographic: Living Treasures of Japan profiles nine established and respected Japanese artists. The Japanese government originally honored 70 craftspeople and performing artists working in ancient arts with a stipend and national admiration; the nine artists featured in the program are culled from that group of artists. Each artist works in a wholly unique ancient medium. For example, one man is a swordmaker who designs weapons based on special rituals; another artist is a dollmaker who gives every piece an distinct personality. A 90-year-old female weaver of indigo is the oldest artist featured; she died shortly after appearing in the video. Directors Noxon and Boyajian travel throughout the Japanese landscape to construct the touching and comprehensive profiles of the artists. ~ John Schietinger, Rovi
