I’m a bit late on this, but I discovered the trailer for Yuasa Noriko’s latest short Coming Back Sunny after checking my Vimeo feed for the first time in many months. Yuasa impressed me with her short Ordinary Everyday (read my thoughts here: https://read.indie-visual.net/indie-forum-2018/#everyday) and I have been looking forward to her next movie. She often works in television and her late-night series ‘Genkai Danchi’ did not disappoint in showcasing her storytelling abilities. There’s a fairly high concept visual language she hopes to achieve with Coming Back Sunny but she seems confident both in the narrative and her directorial choices.
The movie tells the story of a color blind high school girl who begins to experience for the first time brief phenomena of red which slowly alters the color of her own life. As with Ordinary Everyday, Coming Back Sunny is part of a short movie triptych.
Yuasa and the producers are looking to bring the movie abroad so if you’re interested, contact Yuasa through her Vimeo.
