Tameharu Nagatacoming soon: trailer and information on "Paper Drama" - a feature documentary about Kamishibai.

The term kamishibai literally translates to “paper drama.” In the 1950s as many as 3,000 kamishibai performers roamed the streets of Tokyo performing folktales of morality to young audiences. However, with the advent of mass publishing and television, the art form almost disappeared. There are only a handful of street kamishibai performers. Today, kamishibai has evolved into an educational tool for use in the classroom.
