Aku wa sonzai shinai

Evil Does Not Exist (SDH)

To like
In a Japanese village, surrounded by the trickling waters of the local river and the gentle rustle of the trees, a single father Takumi raises his daughter Hana. Their peaceful little life is shattered when a company from Tokyo announces plans to build a luxury campsite nearby. As tensions rise and fears about the river getting irreversibly contaminated grow stronger, Takumi finds himself spearheading the resistance. Ryûsuke Hamaguchi, the film’s director, first set out to make a 30-minute silent film for live musical score composed by Eiko Ishibashi. However, as the narrative unfolded, the director ultimately decided to turn it into a feature film with dialogues and a strong emphasis on music.

This movie screening is adapted for the deaf and hard of hearing. What does this mean? The film will be shown with special subtitles (SDH), which will tell a little more than usual about the sounds heard in the film. Hearing viewers will not be disturbed by these subtitles, and deaf and hard of hearing people will be able to fully watch the movie together with hearing people.
