Hadaka no shima

Directed by Kaneto Shindô
Japan, 1960

The story of a small family unit and their subsistence as the only inhabitants of an arid, sun-baked island. With hardly any dialogue, Shindô combines the stark ’Scope cinematography of Kiyoshi Kuroda with the memorable score of his constant collaborator Hikaru Hayashi.
