The Naked Island (Masters of Cinema)
£11.49  

Filmed on the virtually deserted Setonaikai archipelago in south-west Japan, The Naked Island [Hadaka no shima] was made - in the words of its director - as a cinematic poem to try and capture the life of human beings struggling like ants against the forces of nature . Kaneto Shind (Onibaba, Kuroneko) made the film with his own production company, Kinda Eiga Kykai, who were facing financial ruin at the time. Using one-tenth of the average budget, Shind took one last impassioned risk to make this film. With his small crew, they relocated to an inn on the island of Mihari where, for two months in early 1960, they would make what they considered to be their last film. The Naked Island tells the story of a small family unit and their subsistence as the only inhabitants of an arid, sun-baked island. Daily chores, captured as a series of cyclical events, result in a hypnotising, moving, and beautiful film harkening back to the silent era. With hardly any dialogue, Shind combines the stark Scope cinematography of Kiyoshi Kuroda with the memorable score of his constant collaborator Hikaru Hayashi, to make a unique cinematic document. Shind, who had worked with both Kenji Mizoguchi and Kon Ichikawa, shot to international fame in 1952 with the astounding Children of Hiroshima. Eight years later, the BAFTA-nominated The Naked Island won the Grand Prix at the Moscow International Film Festival (where Luchino Visconti was a jury member). It is now considered to be one of Shinds major works, and its success saved his film company from bankruptcy. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to release The Naked Island for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK. Special Features: Newly restored 1080p transfer, in its 2.35:1 original aspect ratio Full-length audio commentary by director Kaneto Shind and composer Hikaru Hayashi Video introduction by Alex Cox Optional English subtitles 24-page booklet with an essay by Acquarello, and a reprint of Joan Mellens interview with Shind from Voices from the Japanese Cinema
