A silly question asked, to the people I met at the small mountain in the neighborhood: "Do you believe in the spirits of the mountain?" The answers revealed different ideas on myths, religion, and the village. Local artists have started performing rituals for the mountain spirit... What do mountain spirits mean to us now?


Local artists, who have inherited the ritual for the mountain spirit, have been performing for three years in the village. Regretting the disappearance of people's common fantasies, they hope to revive the worn out, childish mountain spirit.
