Hajime Izuki / 12:13:30 AM / Japan / Thriller / 2019
In Hindu Mythology, “Mara” is “the god of death," sometimes seen as a hidden aspect of “erotic desire.” This modern fable vividly depicts the love and madness of a lonely man and woman. In a dark corner of the city, the vagueness of love flickers.
Screened as a part of a omnibus film "Life Works" in Yokohama, Japan
