DEATH BY HANGING

Kôshikei

Trailer
Directed by Nagisa Ôshima
Japan, 1968
Comedy, Crime, Drama

Synopsis

In this macabre farce, a Korean man is sentenced to death in Japan but survives his execution, sending the authorities into a panic about what to do next. At once disturbing and oddly amusing, Nagisa Ôshima’s constantly surprising film is a startlingly subversive and surreal political statement.
