Funeral Parade of Roses © 1969 Matsumoto Production.

This dizzying and sardonic version of Sophocles' Oedipus set in modern Tokyo's gay milieu is a parodic and aesthetically delirious deconstruction of conventional, oppositional politics and a milestone of Japanese queer cinema.

Followed by the Shinjuku Party!


1969, 105 min., 16mm, b&w. Written and directed by Toshio Matsumoto. With Peter, Yoshio Tsuchiya and Osamu Ogasawara. Print courtesy of The Japan Foundation with permission from Matsumoto Production.
