SYNOPSIS: Nishi is a comic book artist who in the course of one night meets his busty ex-girlfriend and her fiancé, gets involved in a yakuza deal and ends up being shot in the arse. Nishi decides his life can’t end the ridiculous way it just has, so he turns his back on God and begins to rewrite his life with very unexpected results.
PANEL DISCUSSION: This Special Section commemorates the centenary with premieres of two overlooked classics that have remained bizarrely little known and rarely screened in the United Kingdom, and a panel discussion with Jasper Sharp, Helen McCarthy and Nag Vladermersky exploring its rich and varied history. (session will be recorded)
