Following his Oscar-winning acclaimed feature “Drive My Car,” Japanese filmmaker Ryusuke Hamaguchi is back with his next work – the ecological fable “Evil Does Not Exist” which has released a trailer.

In the rural alpine hamlet of Mizubiki, not far from Tokyo, Takumi and his daughter, Hana, lead a modest life gathering water, wood, and wild wasabi for the local udon restaurant.

Increasingly, the townsfolk become aware of a talent agency’s plan to build an opulent glamping site nearby, offering city residents a comfortable ‘escape’ to the snowy wilderness.

When two company representatives arrive and ask for local guidance, Takumi becomes conflicted in his involvement, as it becomes clear that the project will have a pernicious impact on the community.

Hitoshi Omika, Ryo Nishikawa, Ryuji Kosaka, and Ayaka Shibutani star in the film which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year to rave reviews.

Sideshow and Janus Films are handling the U.S. release with a limited opening planned for May 3rd in New York.

The post Trailer: “Evil Does Not Exist” appeared first on Dark Horizons.
