We continue our request month with one from Patreon Donor Ludo Round. This week we’re discussing Hiroshi Teshigahara’s Woman in the Dunes. Based on a novel by, and adapted by the author Kobo Abe, the film stars Eiji Okada as teacher and amateur entomologist Niki Jumpei. On a sea-side vacation, he spends the night with the titular Woman played by Kyoko Kishida. In the morning he finds that he is trapped in the pit that holds her home. He’s now expected to help her shovel sand every night in a kind of Sissyphea nightmare.

Samm Deighan and Beth Accomando join Mike to talk about this beautiful film. Become a supporter of this podcast: https://www.spreaker.com/podcast/the-projection-booth-podcast--5513239/support.
