Yoake – A Chewing-Gum Story


Fiction, 14 min.


by Roland Zumbühl

Austria, April 2002

A businessman and a female musician meet in Vienna and spend an evening together. Far from their country, Japan, they meet in hopes of finding in their memories some signs of belonging to a common culture. Between poetry and nostalgia, a school film uses small gestures and silences, in homage to a certain Asian cinema.
