SUNDAY, MAY 26TH at 3:00PM

Based on the existentialist novel by Kōbō Abe with the Japanese title 砂の女 (Suna no onna) translated to the English title The Woman in the Dunes. Director Teshigahara reanimates shifting sand as its own dynamic character in a desolate landscape where only arthropods and crustacea crawl.

The film follows the endeavors of entomologist (Eiji Okada) on a bug-hunting quest from Tokyo, who finds himself stranded in a region of remote dunes after the last bus has left. Local villagers help him from his misfortune by offering him shelter for the night. Leading him to a rope ladder that falls into a sandpit with a lifeless house where a local woman lives (Kyoko Kishida). The following morning he finds that the ladder has disappeared, leaving the man in a frenzy calculating his escape. This film will seep inside your skin and mind like the infectious featured monochrome sand. (more…)
