Performer Issei Sagawa, Jun Sagawa
Event Originally produced by Grasshopper Film in 2017.
Summary A documentary that reflects on the discomfiting significance of cannibalistic desire in human existence through the prism of one Japanese man, Issei Sagawa who was arrested in 1981 in Paris for killing and eating his classmate, Renée Hartevelt. Declared legally insane, he returned to Japan where he has lived as a free man ever since. Ostracized from society, he has made his living off his crime by writing novels, drawing manga, appearing in documentaries and sexploitation films in which he reenacts his crime, and even becoming a food critic. Official Selection at the **Venice International Film Festival** and at the **Toronto International Film Festival**. "*Undeniably fascinating. The film asks probing questions about the identity of the post-war Japanese male, the depths of the empathetic imagination, and whether societal boundaries are needed to get a grip on humanity.*" - *** ***
