The ghost of a miner killed by a mysterious stranger stays on because he can’t understand the reason for his death. Based on a novel by Kobo Abe, ATG-co-founder Teshigahara’s first feature film is a surreal and atmospheric study of alienation, moral descent and spiritual bankruptcy.

1962, 97 min., 35mm, b&w. Directed by Hiroshi Teshigahara. With Hiroshi Igawa, Kazuo Miyahara and Kanichi Omiya. Print courtesy of Janus Films.
