Grand Bouquet is a beautiful surrealist work about a helpless woman who confronts a black object with a power greater than hers. The object shoots her questions, which the woman has to answer, but she cannot speak out loud. Instead of speaking, she begins to throw up beautiful, colourful flowers. Nao Yoshigai’s film screened all around the world, was selected in the 2019 Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival, and won various awards at festivals internationally.
