A rare opportunity to see the work of Japan’s most influential twentieth-century writer. Read More >

Tokyo, 1960. Blinded fifteen years earlier in a US firebombing raid, a young man becomes the subject of a bitter custodial battle. Still traumatised, his psychotic outbursts expose a hidden wartime legacy of trauma and denial.
