After making a name for himself in the late sixties as a boundary-pushing writer and director for the sci-fi television series Ultraman, Akio Jissoji went on to emerge as an equally innovative independent filmmaker with a trio of highly experimental and visually daring narrative features released through the Art Theater Guild (all scripted by Toshiro Ishido) that offer transgressive interpretations of Buddhist philosophy and the existential problem of impermanence. Long unavailable on home video outside of Japan, the complete “Buddhist Trilogy” makes its overdue debut at Japan Society with brand-new digital remasters.

Please note: These films contain strong sexual content including depictions of sexual violence.
