Snow Woman (Yuki Onna)
Part of the World Perspectives Strand
This enigmatic and atmospheric retelling of an ancient Japanese ghost story is beautifully directed by Kiki Sugino, who also takes on the lead role as the ghostly snow woman. The story sees a hunter and his mentor encounter the snow woman during a snowstorm, with her frostbite-inducing breath killing the mentor, but sparing the hunter. He later meets the mysterious Suki (also Sugino), who resembles the snow woman and marries her. But the supernatural world haunts them, and spirits and superstition eventually impact on their rural idyll.
