U.S. Premiere


When people around her start going mad, Etsuko (Kaho, Our Little Sister) finds the cause of their affliction in the hospital where her husband Tatsuo (Shota Sometani, Himizu) works with the mysterious Dr. Makabe (Masahiro Higashide, Asako I & II). What she discovers are extraterrestrials in human form that are capable of removing “concepts” from people with the touch of a hand and are prepping for an invasion. Etsuko, however, also finds she is immune to their powers. Featuring his flair for depicting modern alienation while utilizing ingenious scene set ups and subtle humor, Kiyoshi Kurosawa (Journey to the Shore, Cure) returns with this lo-fi sci-fi steeped in the body snatcher genre that expands on the world of Before We Vanish (2017).

2017. 140 min. DCP, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa. With Kaho, Shota Sometani, Masahiro Higashide, Ren Osugi.
