Takumi is the name given to Japanese master craftsmen. They devote a lifetime to their craft. Endless repetition, no shortcuts. Developing almost super human abilities.
But how do we honor and preserve human craft, human ingenuity, timeless creative processes; as simultaneously we design machines to act more precisely and faster than humans ever can? How do we take the long road to excellence in a world clamoring for shortcuts?
This film is a visually-stunning, character-driven portrait of the unique philosophy of Takumi in today’s modern world.
Takumi. The 60,000 hour story of human craft.
Through over 60,000 hours and a philosophy of no shortcuts, they have cultivated superhuman senses. Senses that allow them to craft a Lexus beyond the limits of any machine or artificial intelligence.
