Once Upon a Dream
眠り姫 (Nemuri-Hime)
CLASSICS: RESTORATIONS & REDISCOVERIES
INTERNATIONAL PREMIERE
For the film’s 10th anniversary, experimental filmmaker Kei Shichiri (DUBHOUSE, JAPAN CUTS 2015) presents an all-new sound and image remastering of his tour de force film (formerly translated as Before the Day Breaks). Based on a manga by Naoki Yamamoto, the film follows Aochi, who sleeps and sleeps but never feels like she has slept enough. Shichiri, who explores the limits of sound and image in his diverse body of work, presents a highly evocative dramatic film in which humans barely appear on screen. The story is told through voiceover, sound and visions of dreams and landscapes. Over the years, the film has gained fans, including contemporary auteur Kiyoshi Kurosawa, who compared the film to those by Jean-Luc Godard.
“...the instability of existence—this is exactly what I want to express in my animations and I respect Shichiri for giving it shape in such bold, experimental spirit.” —Koji Yamamura
2007-2016. 79 min. Blu-ray, in Japanese with English subtitles. Directed by Kei Shichiri. With Tsugumi, Hidetoshi Nishijima, Koji Yamamoto, Saburo Otomo.
Part of JAPAN CUTS 2017.
