Ryusuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car), one of contemporary world cinema’s most acclaimed voices, returns with his new film, Evil Does Not Exist.

Takumi (Hitoshi Omika) and his daughter Hana (Ryo Nishikawa) live in Mizubiki Village, close to Tokyo. One day, the village inhabitants become aware of a plan to build a camping site near Takumi’s house offering city residents a comfortable “escape” to nature.

Featuring an acclaimed original score by Eiko Ishibashi (who also helped conceptualize the story), Evil Does Not Exist plays off its serenity with sharp commentary and an enriching atmosphere from one of the new titans of Japanese cinema.
