A collaborative animated film based on a 17th-century Japanese collaborative poem. Each subsequent line was animated by a different director; 36 in total.

This was an international project, although most of the directors were Japanese. For the sake of simplicity, only the organizer (Kihachirō Kawamoto, who made segment #2 and #36) and the two Russian participants (Yuriy Norshteyn who made segment #1 and Aleksandr Petrov who made segment #12, at 13:26) have been listed. The names of all 36 directors are listed on Wikipedia, and they're mentioned in the subtitles as well.

Winter Days won the Grand Prize of the Japan Media Arts Festival in 2003.
