A film by Peter Liechti
The incredible story of how the mummified corpse of a 40-year-old man was discovered by a hunter in one of the most remote parts of the country. The dead man's detailed notes reveal that he actually committed suicide through self-imposed starvation only the summer before. Liechti's film is a stunning rapprochement of a fictional text, which itself is based upon a true event e cinematic manifesto for life, challenged by the main character's radical rnunciation of life itself.
Based on the novel «Miira Ni Narumade» by Shimada Masahiko. According to a true Story.
