Ten Nights of Dreams - Yume juya
This film has no current screenings
Nikkatsu’s unique omnibus of phantasmagorical tales is based upon the collection of surreal stories by author Soseki Natsume (1867-1916), who dedicated his baffling work to be interpreted 100 years hence. Arriving right on time, the magnificent Ten Nights of Dreams includes work by the late, great Kon Ichikawa (The Burmese Harp), Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge), and Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy). Spanning a wide variety of approaches and subjects (childhood, love, war, art), the genre-fest is alternately absurd, hilarious, nightmarish, and just plain weird.
