The Inferno of First Love © Hani Productions.

Using psychograms of a shy young man traumatized by the sexual abuse of his stepfather and a young nude photo model, Hani employs a heterogeneity of styles that punctuate the complex psycho-sexual exploration of the characters.

1968, 107 min., 16mm, b&w. Directed by Susumu Hani. With Akio Takahashi, Kuniko Ishii and Koji Mitsui. Print courtesy of The Japan Foundation with permission from Hani Productions.
