      Summer Explorers 2019: Inuyashiki (repeat)

      Our annual Summer Explorers season is back as a summer treat! From over the top, offbeat narratives of psychic teenagers and upstart political wrangling in a high school environment, to spectacular battles between good and evil, and stories of tender friendships, Summer Explorers 2019 showcases the range of plotlines that manga has provided film creatives over the years. Come and see the versatility of the influence that manga has had on Japanese cinema! Curated and Presented by the Japan Foundation. Inuyashiki (いぬやしき ) Soon-to-be retired, utterly forgettable salaryman Ichiro Inuyashiki (Noritake Kinashi) gets no respect from his colleagues or his family. His feelings of emptiness and futility are compounded when his doctor informs him that he has terminal cancer with only a few months to live. That night, Inuyashiki is involved in a freak accident which somehow transforms his body into a machine with superhuman powers. Meanwhile, Shishigami (Takeru Sato), a high school student also at the scene of the accident, undergoes the same transformation but unlike Inuyashiki, he begins to recklessly use his newfound powers at will. Are human beings ultimately good or evil? Find out in this fantastically entertaining action film. Directed by Shinsuke Sato, 2018, 127 minutes, English Subtitles ©2018 INUYASHIKI Film Partners ©HIROYA OKU/KODANSHA
