Sayaka ONO

The Duckling

Nippon Visions   ½ 

Sayaka ONO created a painful and deeply moving portrayal of her own vulnerable soul, based on the tense relationship with her parents. Left alone for a entire year at the age of five, she had to grow up with the constant fear of getting abandoned again. Her difficult childhood and youth resulted in depression, frustration and anger, that she now shares with the world.
