The Whale God / A small Japanese village is obsessed with killing a monstrous whale that has decimated it's hunting parties. The town's wealthiest man offers his land, position, and only daughter to the individual who can kill the demon whale. Shaki, a popular young man whose family has been massacred by the beast, steps forward vowing to slay the whale and avenge his relations, but his efforts are complicated by a brutish stranger to the village also intent on killing the monster and collecting on the promised riches. Based on Koichiro Uno's award-winning novel published the previous year and scripted by visionary writer-director Kaneto Shindo, this loose adaptation of Herman Melville's Moby Dick captures the madness and danger of whaling and combines it with period drama and kaiju monster effects. RELEASED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN NORTH AMERICA! -English subtitles
