Himizu – Sion Sono’s Latest Film In Cinemas From June 1st
‘Himizu’, the award-winning film from Japanese director Sion Sono opens in cinemas across the UK on June 1st.
The new film from Sion Sono (Love Exposure, Cold Fish) Himizu tells the powerful story of two teenagers’ struggle to live in dystopian future Japan destroyed by a natural disaster. When young Yuichi is pushed too far he embarks on a violent campaign of revenge against society’s evil doers and it’s up to Keiko who is desperately in love with him to try to bring him back to the path of a decent man.
