Video Clip

This video clip is a segment from a Japanese television documentary about the two Morishita brothers, who used to make their living as Kamishibai Men (street storytellers).  Both are retired now, but once or twice a week, the younger brother performs kamishibai at a park in Tokyo near his home.  He even makes the traditional snacks to sell to the children!  We see the older brother at home, performing a famous scene from The Golden Bat.  He has a tracheotomy and lip-synchs the words to his own voice, which was recorded before the surgery.
