JAPAN | 157 minutes | 1964

Classical Japan meets 1960s psychedelia in Kobayashi’s surreal collection of existential ghost stories. Sarah Pagé has composed new scores for Kurokami, Yuki-Onna and Hoichi the Earless, blending traditional shakuhachi and koto with trance-inducing harp and oud, soaring ondomo and menacing electronics. Jason Sharp, Jonah Fortune, Marie-Jo Thério, Michel F. Coté and Sam Shalabi accompany her on this hypnotic journey, which is, without a doubt, the most surprising experience of this 46th edition.

Created for the festival's 46th edition
