Eori Wakakuwa is a Film Maker mostly for art, fashion and music.
He was born in Tokyo and was working as graphic designer. He also had a great deal of interest in the expression with moving image. When he had a chance to shoot a short documentary with old SUper8 cam during his business trip, he started to change his way of self-expression into film.
