DAICHI’S FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING
dir. by Yasuko Iwasaki • 2016 • Japan • 95′ documentary
in Japanese w/ English subtitles
Every morning the workers of Sasaki Farm begin the day by affirming, “We will circulate love and joy!” The workers talk to the vegetables and the vegetables listen: “How are you? Thank you.” This farm uses no agrichemicals or fertilizers. Bugs and weeds are accepted.
The farm’s operation used to generate a lot of stress and conflict within its owner’s family. Finally ready to abandon the farm, the family was struck by a greater tragedy. Their son, Daichi, suddenly passed away. With his final words, he vowed to protect his family. The family began questioning how they were living and how to make sense of their son’s passing. His name, Daichi, means ground. They decided to remain close to the earth and not only keep the farm but greet the ground and plants that grow in it everyday to say I love you and thank you to their son.
