U.S. Premiere. Upon learning of his estranged father’s passing, Tokyo-based photographer Shinichiro Kayashima (Yutaka Takenouchi) is summoned to the mountains to sell his remote childhood home to shady real estate developer Ryo Uwajima (Takayuki Yamada). When the ill-suited pair try returning to the city through the winding mountain roads, however, a car accident finds them imprisoned by a group of enigmatic, animalistic women who seem spiritually connected to the land. A sensual and decadent mystery-laden ecological fable, Six Singing Women is the first feature film in over a decade from multi-hyphenate artist and JAPAN CUTS alum Yoshimasa Ishibashi (Milocrorze: A Love Story, 2011).

Dir. Yoshimasa Ishibashi, 2023, 113 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with English subtitles. With Yutaka Takenouchi, Takayuki Yamada, Naoto Takenaka.
