Woman of the Dunes

Hiroshi Teshigahara's 1964 adaptation of the Kôbô Abe novel finds an amateur entomologist trapped by seaside villagers into living with a mysterious woman who spends almost all her time preventing her home from being swallowed by advancing sand dunes. A curious, simple and memorably erotic masterpiece. Paired with Kurosawa's High and Low as part of Guild Cinema's Japanese Master Double-Feature. In Japanese with English subtitles. 147 minutes
