A sweeping historical drama of illicit love set in feudal Japan.

In 16th century Japan, a tea-master’s daughter, Ogin (Ineko Arima), accepts the hand of a wealthy merchant, but her love for the Christian samurai Ukon (Tatsuya Nakadai) remains unwavering. When events conspire to reunite the estranged lovers, their faith is tested as passions ignite. Amidst the grand set-pieces and lush period drama, director Kinuyo Tanaka offers a sharp examination of female desire and autonomy against all odds.

Programmed by and notes by Kristy Matheson. Presented in partnership with Janus Films. This retrospective was conceived by Lili Hinstin.
