This ravishing film follows Eddie, a trans woman navigating a love triangle in the gay bar scene alongside a revolutionary student movement
4k DCP RestorationSet in the queer underground of 1960s Japan, Toshio Matsumoto’s innovative film follows Eddie, a trans woman (the film debut of legendary entertainer Pîtâ) as she navigates a melodramatic love triangle in the Tokyo gay bar scene alongside a revolutionary student movement.
Filled with self-reflexive humor, Oedipal references, and delightful divas, this ravishing tale of identity bursts with Japanese New Wave aesthetics while blending documentary and experimental techniques to craft a kaleidoscopic phantasm of queer cinema.
