The Crying Wind


Directed by Yôichi Higashi
Japan, 2004


“The Crying Wind” is the sound said to be made when air streams through the fractured skull of a kamikaze pilot, made into a shrine on an Okinawan island. The denizens and visitors to the island, varying from childhood to old age, all seem to be ensorcelled by the mysteries of the skeleton.

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