Double layered town is a story by Seo Natsumi, planting seeds for new folktales born in the wake of the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. The town that once stood and the one built after the completion of land elevation work─four travelers who know neither head for Rikuzentakata in 2018, listen to what the local people have to say, hold repeated dialogues and recite stories. The travelers find their own speaking voice through cycles of listening, reporting, and retelling. This is a record of a site where a small “succession” is initiated, captured with a delicate touch by filmmaker Komori Haruka.
