2006, 83 min., digital video. Directed by Shunji Iwai.  U.S. Premiere.

Known as the master of love stories, Director Shunji Iwai (All About Lili Chou Chou) recounts Kon Ichikawa’s prolific career (Fires on the Plain, The Inugami Family and The Burmese Harp), particularly focusing on his close romantic and creative partnership with his wife, writer Natto Wada. Iwai’s personal admiration for the director shines throughout the film as he commemorates the making of Ichikawa’s Murder of the Inugami Clan, which turned out to be his final film, as he passed away in February.
