Cast: Eiji Okada, Kyoko Kishida.

In this existential drama of the Japanese New Wave an unnamed school teacher and amateur insect collector misses his bus back to Tokyo. Local villagers invite him to stay with a young widow who lives at the bottom of a sand dune. The next morning, the villagers refuse to drop the ladder down the sand dune and inform him that he must stay. Evoking the myth of Sisyphus, the characters’ eternal battle with the sand keeps them immobile, forever struggling for mere survival.
