subtitles: Polish and English

Cast

Raizo Ishihara, Eléonore Hendricks, Chizuru Lee, Maiko Endo

Film description

Director Maiko Endo’s debut is a dream film, complete with oneiric logic (i.e. lack thereof), set on Okinawa in wait for the apocalypse. Historically, the island was a powerful kingdom and an American military base. Its identity is now unclear, a ghost netherworld where remnants of Japanese spirituality carouse with American pop-culture. Traditional holidays honor ancestors, gangs roam the streets, and American soldiers consume tacos in a visually stunning film, that has less of standard narration and more the feel of a box photographs found in a shoebox that tell the stories of the many ends of this world.
