"I filmed alone on 16mm on Hatoma Island in Okinawa for nine months between 1977 and 1981 and completed four films. 76 year old Oshiro was the only one on this depopulated island who made traditional fishing baskets. I spent a day with her while she made one and taught others. It was the first time she let me film and told me her story." - Solrun Hoaas.
