Director Hiroki Ryuichi came to speak to us, Master's Tea style, after a screening of his quite lovely film, Vibrator.
Relax, the title refers to the hum of a truck engine and the pitter patter of a woman's heart/cell phone.
After the film we dined with the director, and I sketched.His actress friend came by during dinner, so I started sketching her, too.
After an awkward series of events, Mr. Hiroki asked to see what I drew over dinner and gave jovial chuckle when he recognized himself, complimenting me in Japanese!
His movie made me want to cry, his compliment made me want to fly.
