Funeral Parade of Roses

Funeral Parade of Roses

Behold the psychedelic experimentation of the Japanese New Wave, for Toshio Matsumoto's 1969 masterpiece of queer film, Funeral Parade of Rose, awaits your arrival.

A loose adaptation of Oedipus Rex, the film is an electrifying journey into the nether regions of the late-'60s Tokyo underground. Out here, gay bars pulsate with life and drama, and underground art scenes spill out onto the streets, alongside various uncomfortable truths binding the people within.

A unique blend of documentary, arthouse, and avant-garde, Funeral Parade of Rose is an unforgettable plunge into the psyche of 1960s queer expression.
