A legend in Japan, cult filmmaker Nobuhiko Obayashi  launched his career in cinema with a series of avant-garde, small-gauge films whose daring visual style and free structure would inform his feature films. A friend and contemporary of luminary filmmaker Shuji Terayama, Obayashi shared his fellow radical’s distrust of the dominant culture, which he willfully subverted in his playful and indelible films. harvard film archive
