Sisters of the Gion

祇園の姉妹 | Gion no shimai

निर्देशक Kenji Mizoguchi
जापान, 1936


The independent, unsentimental Omocha and her sister, the more tradition-minded Umekichi, are both geishas in the working-class district of Gion. Mizoguchi’s film is an uncompromising look at the forces that keep many women at the bottom rung of the social ladder.
