North American Premiere

Yoshimasa Ishibashi and Takayuki Yamada will attend the screening.

This freaked-out slab of solid psychedelia is what movies will look like in the year 23,000 AD! Makes Matthew Barney look tame. A bizarro musical/variety/samurai/love story directed by Yoshimasa Ishibashi, the mad genius behind “The Fuccon Family” television show, and starring Takayuki Yamada in three different roles, Milocrorze: A Love Story defies description. Following a scene where a young boy falls in love with the title character, only to have his heart broken by her, the film introduces us to three young men who are all in Milocrorze thrall, either literally or figuratively.

Presented with Japan Cuts: Festival of Contemporary Japanese Cinema.
