Rolling along on a bike or floating in a doctor’s office’s seasonal hamster display, Wheel Music explores the aesthetic feeling and social character of Sendagi, an old town in Tokyo under urban development in preparation for the planned Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics. Filmed in 2018, as director Nao Yoshigai notes: “The present scenery might soon disappear. I went out by bicycle with my video camera. This is a ‘life road-movie documentary.’”
