Produced and directed by Giacomo Calistri and Laura Innocenti, our Hokkaido Epic debut offers a thrilling rush through the mountains, dojos, traditions and nightlife of Hokkaido accompanied by the primal rhythms of the Japanese island’s taiko drums.

Rationale: “We wanted to show Hokkaido in an innovative and unique way, so we set out to capture that beauty as a dream-like series of fleeting yet extraordinarily powerful images that make the viewer want to drop everything and head straight to Sapporo” says CEO, Sofia Panayiotaki
