Hiroshi Teshigahara's powerful masterpiece, based on the novel by Kobo Abe, follows an amateur biologist who escapes the bustle of the city by studying beetles in remote sand dunes. After missing the last bus, he accepts a villager's offer to spend the night in a widow's shack at the bottom of a deep sand pit. In the morning he finds he is trapped. At first enraged, the man's hatred for the woman soon turns to searing, erotic lust.

Featuring striking high-contrast photography from Hiroshi Segawa and a minimalist score by composer Toru Takemitsu, Woman Of The Dunes was the second collaboration between director Hiroshi Teshigahara and author Kobo Abe, a film preceded and succeeded by their other classics Pitfall and Face Of Another.

Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Cannes in 1964.
