Note / In 1999 Van Warmerdam was invited to stay in the CCA in Kitakyushu for three months. She concluded her visit by showing a film she made in situ. She interpreted the characteristic Japanese custom of bowing as the start of a game of leapfrog. In the film she brings these two together, with the widest tree in Japan in the background.
