A PAGE OF MADNESS

(Japan/1926—directed by Teinosuke Kinugasa)

This uniquely imaginative horror cult classic from the legendary Teinosuke Kinugasa (Gate of Hell) tells the story of a man who takes a job at an asylum in hopes of freeing his wife, who is believed to be imprisoned there. Thought to be lost for over four decades until a print was discovered in 1970, Kinugasa’s singular, avant-garde stunner contains thematic echoes of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari—but with a surreal, terrifying flavor all its own. The silent A Page of Madness will be brought to vivid life thanks to a newly composed score, performed live by Frank Pahl and Little Bang Theory. Admission is free. (approx. 75 min.)
