Directed by Sion Sono

Japan 2016 76 mins. In Japanese

Sion Sono’s adventure re-visits the world of the Roman (softcore) Porno yielding a film that’s anything but sexually gratifying: Is Kyoko a viciously cruel, artistic, sexual force . . . or a defeated pawn in the strict hierarchy of cultural norms and masochism that surrounds her? Kyoko’s oscillating meta-identities pointedly critique the genre and leave the viewer with plenty of questions about the nature of sexuality in and on film in Japan. Adult. In Japanese with English subtitles.
