BEFORE WE VANISH
SANPO SURU SHINRYAKUSHA
2017, Neon , 129 min, Japan , Dir: Kiyoshi Kurosawa

Very few filmmakers can stake claim to the extraordinary run that Kiyoshi Kurosawa had from CURE (1997) to PULSE (2001), films energized by the director’s anger and frustration with society. In this thought-provoking sci-fi drama, the vanguard of an alien invasion arrives to take control of human bodies and study our emotions and values. But even as the invaders learn that most of us aren’t worth saving, Kurosawa cannot give up on his fellow man and woman, and humanity’s most positive qualities could be the key to our salvation.
