Directed by Hiroshi Teshigahara | 1964

With Eiji Okada, Kyoko Kishida

“Filmed with a palpable physicality that remains extraordinary.”
—Time Out London

This startlingly modernist puzzle film concerns an amateur insect enthusiast (Okada) who travels to a barren desert in search of a rare beetle—and finds himself trapped at the bottom of a dune, unable to leave, with an enigmatic woman. From this Kafkaesque premise emerges an erotically charged tale of sex and sand, shot in shimmering silvery monochrome and set to a shattering avant-garde score by the great Toru Takemitsu.
