Film Club: Woman in the Dunes
Please note, this event has expired.
An entomologist on vacation is trapped by local villagers into living with a woman whose life task is shoveling sand for them.
One of the sixties’ great international art-house sensations, “Woman in the Dunes” was for many the grand unveiling of the surreal, idiosyncratic worldview of Hiroshi Teshigahara. Eiji Okada plays an amateur entomologist who has left Tokyo to study an unclassified species of beetle that resides in a remote, vast desert; when he misses his bus back to civilization, he is persuaded to spend the night in the home of a young widow (Kyoko Kishida) who lives in a hut at the bottom of a sand dune.View more
