Swimming Prohibited

Yuuei kinnshi

Directed by Hiroyuki Oki
Japan, 1989


The film was made in a period of three weeks in the summer of 1989. It starts in a youth hostel somewhere in the mountains where Oki has a temporary job and continues in the outer suburbs of Osaka. A short silent film that Oki made in 1988 is included as a flashback in the film.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
