Before We Vanish

129 mins.
Directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa
Japanese with subtitles

Playing one week only, March 9 - March 15.

In his twentieth film, acclaimed director Kiyoshi Kurosawa reinvents the alien movie as a unique and profoundly human tale of love and mystery.

Three aliens travel to Earth on a reconnaissance mission in preparation for a mass invasion. Having taken possession of human bodies, the visitors rob the hosts of their essence - good, evil, property, family, belonging - leaving only hollow shells, which are all but unrecognizable to their loved ones.

Equally hilarious, thrilling, and profound, BEFORE WE VANISH reminds audiences of the continued strength of one of Japanese cinema's most unique auteurs – and the value of the human spirit.

Official selection at Cannes (Un Certain Regard), New York Film Festival, and Fantastic Fest.
