Yahi and Kita, The Midnight Pilgrims (film still), © YAJI X KITA

A gay, drug-addicted Samurai, his married friend, a pilgrimage on a motorbike – and all this in the 17th century! This is the point where the film police intervene … Stand-up-comedy, a road movie, mushrooms that grow out of bodies – Asian pop-modern in the most garish colours.

Director Kankuro Kudo (*1970) lives in Tokyo.
