Tezuka Osamu set out to make an experimental film of four parts set to the Tchaikovsky 4th Symphony, but he only was able to finish the first and fourth movements. Osamu Tezuka died in 1989, and the work was left unfinished, but he left behind a creation memo for the remaining movements.
His son, Macoto Tezka, Visualist and artistic film maker, pieced together the remaining story and finally completed the second movement!
The second movement will premiere on August 21 at the Hiroshima International Animation Film Festival!
