The Cage


Directed by Shûji Terayama
Japan, 1964
Short, Fantasy, Avant-Garde


Finished shooting in 1962, the movie’s cast was almost the same as its crew. With a bunch of experimental symbols such as skinny human body, clock and goat flow from one scene to another, the film explores the question of whether a man is a prisoner of time.
