Kwaidan in 35mm

Series: Wyrd War Presents!

Wyrd War invites you to experience the epic Japanese folk horror anthology on the big screen with a rare 161 minute 35mm presentation for one night only!

Acclaimed director Masaki Kobayashi pulls four weird tales - The Black Hair, The Woman of the Snow, Hoichi the Earless and In a Cup of Tea – directly from the pages of Greek ethnographer Lafcadio Hearn's 1904 Japanese folk story collection Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things to create a hallucinatory and haunting symphony for the senses.

At turns terrifying, funny, heartbreaking and quaint, KWAIDAN is perhaps best remembered for its incredible score by composer Tōru Takemitsu, and it is no surprise that it received an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film in 1965. Join Wyrd War for their Eighth Annual Walpurgisnacht Film Festival in celebration of the dark feminine in cinema and shiver in fear with the Woman of the Snow!
