Academy Award® winning director Ryusuke Hamaguchi follows up his masterpiece DRIVE MY CAR with a new film that explores the tensions between divergent ways of life in Japan. EVIL DOES NOT EXIST is the story of Takumi and his daughter Hana, who live in Mizubiki Village, close to Tokyo. Like generations before them, they live a modest life according to the cycles of nature. But when a city based company buys nearby land with the intention of launching a “glamping” site for young, social media obsessed patrons, the clash between the village and the company brings unexpected consequences.
In Japanese with English subtitles.
