Film Series: Kwaidan

1964. Japan. Dir: Masaki Kobayashi. With Keiko Kishi. 183 min. 35mm print.

A beautiful spectre appears in the snow; a writer sees faces in his tea; a blind musician performs for an unusual audience. This hypnotically stylized quartet of ghost stories dissolves the boundaries between life and death, whisking together folklore, big-budget cinematic artifice, and avant-garde music into one rapturous existential horror spectacle.
