Kanagawa Prefecture native and Musashino Art University graduate Nanako Hirose is the 2020 JDFA Honorable Mention for her film, "Book-Paper-Scissors" (Tsutsunde, hirsute): the story of a master book designer. Although she has been working in the film industry for years, her director's debut film, "His Lost Name," was released in 2018.

Hirose Nanako, whose film Book-Paper-Scissors is a meditation on craft and art, follows the life and work of book designer Nobuyoshi Kikuchi. This deliberate film matches the craft it is following, allowing its audience to think about the surfaces and depths of artistic practice.
