Yaji and Kita: The Midnight Pilgrims
In the ancient Edo period, Yaji and Kita are two flamboyant, down-and-out samurai who embark on a journey on their souped-up chopper to battle Kita's heroin addiction and contemplate the meaning of their truly bizarre existence. On their way to a healing shrine at Ise, they trip through a world where fantasy is reality, and the past and present intersect. A surreal blend of slapstick comedy, musical and EASY RIDER, YAJI AND KITA heralds the directorial debut of Kankuro Kudo (acclaimed writer of Takashi Miike's ZEBRAMAN) and stars Tomoya Nagase and Shichinosuke Nakamura as the whacked-out titular duo. Marked with a unique brand of cinematic mayhem, this hallucinogenic gay love story is sure to delight and bewilder all who dare journey with them.
