Evil Does Not Exist

Directed by Ryusuke Hamaguchi

The encroachment of modernity into the natural world goes under the microscope of director Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s (Drive My Car) latest engrossing and tender masterpiece – a multiple winner at Venice 2023.
From 4pm AEST (2.30pm ACST) on Friday, 9 February, all TFF Katherine tickets must be purchased from Katherine Cinema in person. Tickets will not be sold onli​​​​​​​​ne.

Tamuki and his daughter Hama live outside of Tokyo in a serene woodland setting. They lives are closely connected to, and in reverence to, the vibrant forest around them. But their serenity soon is viewed as a commodity, when their area becomes a target for corporations looking to find areas to offer glamping - “escapes to nature” - that will disrupt the delicate ecological balance. With ever growing tension, this magical, timely drama is not to be missed.
Japanese superstar-in-the-making Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s (Drive My Car) latest film is a touching ecological parable full of little feints and narrative red herrings. Just when you think it’s heading in one direction, it slips off elsewhere, like a fawn in the woods.
