Preview Screenings this Thursday: Hit Man - one of the most anticipated comedies of the year

Closes May 23
🇯🇵 "A gorgeous eco-fable that ends with a mythical mic drop"

The new movie from Japanese auteur Ryûsuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car).

In the rural alpine hamlet of Mizubiki, not far from Tokyo, Takumi and his daughter, Hana, lead a modest life gathering water, wood, and wild wasabi for the local udon restaurant. Increasingly, the townsfolk become aware of a talent agency’s plan to build an opulent glamping site nearby, offering city residents a comfortable “escape” to the snowy wilderness. When two company representatives arrive and ask for local guidance, Takumi becomes conflicted in his involvement, as it becomes clear that the project will have a pernicious impact on the community. Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s follow up to his Academy Award®-winning DRIVE MY CAR is a foreboding fable on humanity’s mysterious, mystical relationship with nature. As sinister gunshots echo from the forest, both the locals and representatives confront their life choices and the haunting consequences they have.

… A fraught study of a community besieged by the modern world and determined to resist it, whatever the cost.
