KURONEKO (Black Cat)

In war-torn medieval Japan, a demon haunts the Rajomon Gate.  The governor sends a fearless war hero (Kichiemon Nakamura) to confront the spirit, but what the man finds are two beautiful women (Nobuko Otowa, Kiwako Taichi) who look just like his lost mother and wife. Both a chilling ghost story and a meditation on the nature of war and social hypocrisy, Kuroneko (Black Cat) is the second horror triumph from writer/director Kaneto Shindô (Onibaba, The Island), who mixes stunning visuals, an evocative score, and influences from Noh theater to create an atmospheric, haunting and emotionally devastating masterpiece. Released to great acclaim in 1968, Kuroneko is loosely based on the Japanese folktale The Cat's Return and will be presented with a new 35mm print!
