Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield joins us for his rescheduled ScreenTalk, which was due to take place during our autumn season in 2012, Seven Deadly Sins

Invited to choose a film based on his favourite sin, Broomfield opts to screen Teshigahra’s landmark in Japanese cinema and a seriously sinister example of Sloth, after which he will join writer and film curator Gareth Evans on stage for a live Q&A.

Woman of the Dunes tells the story of a young man who is trapped by local villagers into living with a mysterious and fragile woman in a house located beneath the sand. She spends her days scooping out the sand that threatens to swallow her home, while her prisoner assists her and contemplates his fate.

Japan 1964 Dir Hiroshi Teshigahra 123 min
