Haiku [videorecording]: In Basho's Footsteps

NHK ; director, Kayoko Aiba ; executive producer, Masataka Hara
Format
Video; DVD
Summary
In Sept. 2002, 14 haiku lovers from five different countries (including Visnja McMaster and Judit Vihar) follow in the master's footsteps as they open themselves to the haiku moment at the very places where Basho himself found inspiration. One of the best-known collections of classical haiku is Basho's "Oku no Hosomichi," or Narrow Road to the Deep North, written in 1689 as a record of the poet's travels in northwestern Japan. In this documentary, they retrace Basho's footsteps and discover the sources of his inspiration. All personal perceptions aside, everybody agrees that through the traditional 5-7-5 syllable format, the true beauty of nature comes together in a "haiku moment." The therapeutic value of haiku-writing for traumatized children and adults is also addressed.
