One Cut of the Dead
Unique horror film produced by ENBU Seminar Cinema Project. Became a social-phenomenon hit when the theatrical run exploded from two theaters in Tokyo to a wide-scale release in response to the peculiar structure including a thirty-seven-minute opening cut, despite using a no-name cast.
An indie film crew is shoot ing a zombie film in an abandoned building deep in the mountains. The uncompromising director (Hamatsu Takayuki) drives the production relentlessly and gets to fourty-two takes. Then, real zombies appear and attack the crew, but the director is thrilled and keeps the camera rolling. (Synopsis from Japanese Film Festival)
