Asako I & II

October 12 - October 20

Single Tickets $6     Semester Passes $35     Where Are Films Shown?     Where Can I Park for free on Campus? 

A truly original Vertigo riff, based on a novel by Tomoka Shibasaki, Asako I & II is an enchanting, unnerving paean to the notion of love as a trance state. Asako and Baku share an all-consuming romance—but one day the moody Baku vanishes. Two years later, having moved from Osaka to Tokyo, Asako meets Baku’s exact double. Filmmaker Ryusuke Hamaguchi (Happy Hour), has returned with a beguiling and mysterious film that traces the trajectory of a love—or, to be accurate, two loves—found, lost, displaced, and regained.
