REALITY PRESENT ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE'S KAWABATA MAKOTO PERFORMING A LIVE SCORE TO JAPANESE DIRECTOR SEIJUN SUZUKI'S ZIGEUNERWEISEN PRODUCED BY MAREK PYTEL. THE HORSE HOSPITAL, LONDON. FRIDAY 14TH NOV 2003. THE CUBE CINEMA, BRISTOL. SATURDAY 15TH NOV 2003. AN ORIGINAL REALITY PRODUCTION.

A stunning film about decadence and nihilism in the twenties, with the symbols that impelled the elite in the country to fascist delirium. The dramatic relationship between two couples and a geisha affected by religious dilemmas on life and death. This is the film that best justifies the title 'wizard of image' bestowed on Seijun Suzuki.

Cast: Yoshio Harada, Naoko Otani, Toshiya Fujita, Michiyo Okusu, Kisako Makishi. 145 mins 1980

DEEP SEIJUN: Voted Best Japanese Film of the '80s by Japanese critics.
