Shi (Pablo Absento)

shiDirector: Pablo Absento
Country: Japan
Language: English
Runtime: 0 h 09 min

This film barely last 10 minutes, but right from the first until the last moment you’re glued to the screen. Pablo chose a magnificent location to film this horror. It’s easy to say that the mysterious forest plays an extra part in this film, benefiting the atmosphere. The clash between east and west doesn’t show that well, except for the way Pablo pictures it.

She manages to show something typical Japanese in a western way. In the case of Shi, it can be considered a compliment.
