Lost Three Make One Found (2019)

  • Short, Documentary, Travel
  • 26min

A joyous, off-the-beaten-path road trip film from young Portuguese-fluent Japanese director, nicknamed “Sushi,” who is searching for the Sacred Fountain of Fornalha—a legendary spring in Southern Portugal said to heal heartbreak—in a campervan named “The Little Donkey.” Featuring many unique characters and gorgeous scenery along the way, the voyage itself seems to heal him, not the fountain. Dedicated to his late grandmother, who makes a brief appearance, and whom Kuwayama learned had passed away in Japan during his trip.
