Evil Does Not Exist.png

In the rural alpine hamlet of Mizubiki, not far from Tokyo, Takumi (Hitoshi Omika) and
his daughter, Hana (Ryô Nishikawa), lead a modest life gathering water, wood, and wild
wasabi for the local udon restaurant. Increasingly, the townsfolk become aware of a talent agency's plan to build an opulent glamping site nearby, offering city residents a comfortable "escape" to the snowy wilderness. When two company representatives arrive and ask for local guidance, Takumi becomes conflicted in his involvement, as it becomes clear that the project will have a pernicious impact on the
community. Director Ryusuke Hamaguchi's internationally acclaimed follow-up to his Academy Award®-winning DRIVE MY CAR is a foreboding fable on humanity's mysterious, mystical relationship with nature. As sinister gunshots echo from the forest, both the locals and representatives confront their life choices and the haunting consequences they have. (Japanese, with English subtitles)
