Introduction by Michael Raine, Assistant Professor, East Asian Languages & Civilizations and Cinema & Media Studies.

An extraordinary, even contradictory, film in many respects, Page of Madness (Kurutta ichipeiji) has been praised as a masterpiece of the political modernist avant-garde, exposing by breaking all the devices of classical narration's ideological transparency and questioning the stability of the story world itself.

It was created by a loose collective of avant-garde filmmakers and writers (in particular Kawabata Yasunari, who would go on to win the Nobel prize for literature), and featured Inoue Masao, one of the most highly regarded actors of his day. "Rediscovered" in the 1970s, the current version of the film is 25 minutes shorter than the one that was first released, emphasizing the avant-garde aspects of the original, it's impressionist rhythms and kammerspiel-like intensity.
