In Hiroshi Teshigahara’s Academy Award-nominated film, young entomologist Niki Junpei finds himself trapped in a sand-drenched pit where he is at first encouraged to stay the night (and then forced to live and work) with a strange widow who lives there in a shack being swallowed up by sand. Abounding with tension and depth, and aided by the stunning cinematography of Hiroshi Segawa, Woman in the Dunes is one of Teshigahara’s most internationally celebrated and influential contributions to the Japanese New Wave. Academy Award nominations for Best Director and Best Foreign Language Film. In Japanese with English subtitles.
