A PAGE OF MADNESS: Teinosuke Kinugasa, JP 1927. 60mins.
IN THE NURSERY’s score incorporates the latest music technology with traditional Japanese instrumentation and percussion.
“A fascinating and unique glimpse of Japanese silent film. Using no inter-titles to relay his disturbing tale, Kinugasa relies solely on
visual invention – ‘expressionistic’ camera angles, penetrating close-ups and super-impositions. This startling work of radical invention easily rivals the most advanced avant-garde practices of the West.”
