North American Premiere

In a snowy coastal town in northern Japan, a persistent journalist (Arata Iura) reopens a decades-old unsolved case involving the disappearance of a young boy, a mysterious fire and a local outcast largely suspected of wrongdoing who was nevertheless found not guilty. When the victim’s brother (Masatoshi Nagase) and the primary suspect’s troubled daughter (Nahana) get involved, a maelstrom of long-repressed emotions and psychological traumas are reawakened. Written and directed by newcomer Sayaka Kai with a veteran cast, Red Snow is a tense and beautifully-shot mystery thriller that suggests the unreliability of memory in the pursuit of truth.

2019. 106 min. Directed by Sayaka Kai. With Masatoshi Nagase, Nahana, Arata Iura, Yui Natsukawa.

This film is unrated, but is not recommended for persons younger than 12 years of age without parental guidance due to mature content.
