Himatsuri

by

Dir. Mitsuo Yanagimachi (1985).
One of the strongest Japanese films of the ‘80s (also known as Fire Festival), Mitsuo Yanagimachi’s essay on the disappearance of Japan’s archaic underpinnings is a sort of Shinto-analysis—the case history of a lumberjack who would rather sacrifice his family than sell his land for development.
