Okinawa Historical Movie

Traditions of Sea, Sky and Coral


A feature-length human drama set on the islands of Okinawa, surrounded by the sea, sky and majestic coral reefs, this marks writer Makoto Shiina's second turn as director. Okinawa Chirundai... This comical human story is told with realism against the backdrop of an unbelievably hot, lazy summer unique to the Okinawa and Yaeyama Islands.
