CANNES, France--The critically acclaimed director Naomi Kawase will put together a collection of short
films from renowned directors from around the world as a tribute to victims of the March 11 Great East Japan Earthquake.
The two-time Cannes Film Festival prizewinner is one of the contenders for this year's Palme d'Or with her film "Hanezu no Tsuki" (Hanezu).

She said "3/11: A Sense of Home Film Project" will comprise short films, running three minutes and 11 seconds each, by celebrated directors. Apichatpong Weerasethakul, a Thai director who won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival last year, China's Jia Zhangke and Spain's Victor Erice have already signed up to the project.
It will premiere on Sept. 11, exactly six months after the day of the earthquake, at a temple in Kawase's hometown of Nara and will be taken on tour to the devastated Tohoku region and elsewhere. Kawase said she wanted to take it to film festivals across the world.
Kawase said she came up with the idea after asking herself what she could do as a director to "invigorate lives" in the wake of the disaster.
Each short film will focus on the theme of "home." Kawase says the disaster not only physically destroyed tens of thousands of houses, but also the emotional lives within them.
Kawase wants to compile about 20 short films into a 60-minute omnibus. She will contribute her own film.

"I hope people in the Tohoku region will see the film and feel courage to live as much as possible," Kawase said.
Meanwhile, Kawase used a news conference on May 18 to call for humanity to learn to live in balance with nature.
This year's festival is raising donations for victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake, but, in the wake of the nuclear crisis triggered by the massive temblor, Kawase told journalists on May 18 that humanity had to consider "the way modern people developed society to the detriment of natural environments."
Kawase's new film, "Hanezu," which is competing for the Palme d'Or, depicts relationships between a female textile-dyeing artist and two men living in Asuka, Nara Prefecture, a remote location that was once an ancient capital of Japan. The film received a standing ovation at its premiere.
